S/S 2007 Christian Lacroix Blue Strapless Dress & Shawl w Applique

About

Christian LaCroix launched his Haute Couture house in 1987 and was instantly adored and revered. A ready-to-wear line soon followed along with perfumes and menswear. His collections are always an exotic, lavish affair and his inspirations spanned the decades with their eccentric, exotic glamour. His atelier closed in 2009. This dress is from the Spring 2006 collection. I love that for production they went with this stunning full length version rather then the shorter dress as it was shown in for the presentation that season. LaCroix was the master at creating pieces that combine color and textiles and this is a wonderful example of his work. The dress is strapless and fitted through the bodice and the silk voile applied so that it peeks up and over the upper edge. It is hand draped and shaped across the bust. Trailing down and across the bodice on a curved line are hand applied floral applique work that are edged in beads and anchor the silk over the bodice. That same applique is also used on the matching shawl along one corner. The bodice is fitted through to the waist and then the skirt flows out from there into yards and yards of fabric. At the back it trails out to create an expansive train. The back skirts are gathered at the small of the back and there is a tie that runs though for you to adjust how tightly this sits there. The print that runs over the gown is stunning and a beautiful combination of blues that give it an ocean feel. Presents as excellent condition with condition notes to review below. Fully lined in black silk gazaar and it is lightly boned and shaped through the bodice. It closes with a hidden set zipper at the back. I see a some small repairs to the fabric at the waist on one side and around some of the lower edges of the flowers, near the base of the zipper and to the train near the back hem where a heel caught the fabric as some point. It presents extremely well once on. All areas have been photoed. Bust: 16" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips of interior lining: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 9.5" from top of bodice to interior corset waist Skirt: 46" from interior corset waist to front hem, 58" to the back hem Shawl: 23" x 78" Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML Send us a note to see this Reference photo: Christian Lacroix Spring 2007 Runway Show, Look 50.
