1970s Oscar de la Renta Chiffon Dress

About

This chiffon gown from Oscar de la Renta for Saks Fifth Avenue is a stunning shade of ultramarine, with shimmering aqua polka dots scattered across it like light dappled on water. Elegant Greek-goddess draping is paired with the fun polka dot pattern to create an unexpected and playful design. The attached scarf can be draped around the body creating a myriad of designs. The fabric moves beautifully, bringing to mind the mist of a waterfall or a running stream. There is some slight discoloration which we have photographed. The silk organza lining to the bodice is shattered in a few places, however this does not impair the ability of this dress to be worn as it is constructed from several layers of fabric. Lightweight chiffon and bright, jewel-like colours make this a perfect summer gown. A great early dress from this iconic American designer.

About Oscar De La Renta (Manufacturer)

    Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stdibs in a 2010 profile.

    And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

    A perennial favorite on 1stdibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
