Vintage 1968 Oscar de la Renta for Jane Derby Green Purple Brocade Mink Fur Gown

$1,500

About

In this gorgeous Oscar de la Renta for Jane Derby designer gown, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern haute-couture. Jane Derby was known as a high-end New York boutique, opening in 1936. In 1965, the famous Oscar de la Renta took over as head designer for the company and in 1969 changed the name to no longer include Jane Derby. This exceptional garment, fashioned from emerald green and purple metallic print silk brocade, is not only eye-catching but also an important piece of early Oscar de la Renta fashion history. The gown has a gorgeous wide-neck, slight cap sleeve bodice. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust and skims the hips as it flows down the body in an effortless a-line column silhouette. Just look at the genuine mink-fur trimming. A timeless gown that is perfect for any modern event. Stylish, feminine luxury will never go out of style. Measurements Bust:39-40 inches Waist:34 inches Hips:42 inches Total Gown Length:58 inches This Oscar de la Renta designer gown is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back zipper and fully-lined. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.

About Oscar De La Renta (Designer)

    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.
