Organza Haute Couture evening dress France, Circa 1955



Circa 1955 France Elegant evening or cocktail dress in organza, unidentified Haute Couture from the 1950s. Bodice with low-cut neckine, halterneck, marked waist and loose skirt, give to this dress an air of New Look. Cream and black silk organza finely pleated and draped for the strapless with underwiring, corseted and lined with cream cotton. A skirt with a wide background in double straw yellow shimmering organza. Three petticoats, two in cream cotton tulle, and one in yellow nylon lined with rigid tulle to shape a very glamorous round silhouette. Excellent condition of color and conservation. Dimensions: front height 101 cm, back height 93 cm, waist 58 cm, chest 85 cm, circumference skirt 420 cm. Pastel tones were often associated to the immediate post-war period. Here, this dress, that has lost its signature but who is definitely couture, is closer to models of Pierre Balmain, Jean Dessès or Carven. Very good quality of execution and patronage. A tiny ring on the bottom of the skirt absolutely hard to notice. Otherwise in very good condition.
