Madame Gres Haute Couture Silk Satin Embroidered Kimono Evening Dress Ca.1960

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A circa 1960 Madame Gres haute couture kimono evening dress in pastel hues and a floral embroidered motif that includes gold thread. Trimmed at the neck, 3/4 sleeves and an attached waist tie with rose pink silk taffeta. The kimono can be worn with the sash tied at the front or the back - though here it is pictured at the front. There is an elastic band at the interior back and a series of snaps at the interior front which help to give the garment its slightly cinched shape. There is no size tag and given its shape, it is impossible to measure but I would say, this should fit a variety of sizes in the neighborhood of 6-8. In good to very good condition with a handful of tiny scattered, light marks and abrasions, one minor run at the back and a very pale, almost imperceptible stain the size of a hand at the bottom front which disappears in the folds - i almost didn't notice it, it is so pale.

Length - 52 1/2"
