Vintage 1970 Mainbocher Couture Vogue Documented Hot Pink Flocked Silk Dress

About the Item

Gorgeous Mainbocher couture shocking pink abstract floral dress dating back to his 1970 collection. As shown, this design was modeled by Loulou de la Falaise for Vogue magazine. Mainbocher was a well-respected couturier who operated fashion houses in Paris and later New York from the 1930's through the 1970's. Mainbocher's arrival in New York coincided perfectly with the city élite's love for French couture, for though he epitomized it, he satisfied their patriotism because he was actually an American. The integrity of luxurious fabrics, intricate cut, quality workmanship were cherished by Mainbocher's upper crust customers. This mid 1960's dress is a perfect example of his genius. The fabric is a lush mid-weight velvet flocked silk satin. The 3/4-length sleeve buttons down bodice really compliments the classic nipped-waist silhouette. The dress can even be worn as a dramatic jacket if you choose to leave it unbuttoned. You get the effect of elegance and edgy at the same time. I love the sculpted mermaid skirting which really moves beautifully when worn. As Mainbocher once said "I have never known a really chic woman whose appearance was not, in large part, an outward reflection of her inner self." Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:up to 36 inches Total Length:55 inches This Mainbocher custom couture dress is in excellent condition with no stains, holes or repairs. Perfectly working original buttons in place. The workmanship is immaculate and all hand-finished. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
