Vintage 1977 Oscar de la Renta Royal-Blue Silk Asymmetric Caftan Blouse & Skirt

$2,200

About

Oscar de la Renta is one of the world's leading fashion designers. Trained by Cristóbal Balenciaga and Antonio Castillo, he became internationally known in the 1960's as one of the couturiers to dress Jacqueline Kennedy. This breathtaking early creation from Oscar De La Renta is not only rare but shockingly timeless. The vibrant royal blue fabric is a "light as a feather" crepe silk-chiffon so wearing the garment feels like wearing air. The blouse is a seductive one-shoulder asymmetric plunge with angel-sleeve caftan overlay. I adore the neck button detailing and high-to-low waterfall hem. The matching nipped-waist wrap skirt is incredibly easy-to-wear and so modern. This figure flattering goddess ensemble accentuates the bust and skims the hips. It is impeccably seamed and on the level of modern day couture. Measurements Blouse Bust:38-39 inches Shortest Length:22 inches Longest Length:40 inches Skirt Waist:30 inches Hips:Free Sweep Total Length:38 inches This rare Oscar de la Renta designer set is in excellent condition with no rips or holes. It is fully lined in matching colored silk. Closes with hidden hook/eye closures. Only sign of age is a few surface spots only to the outer blouse which are hard to notice when worn. Please message for detailed pictures. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.

About the Designer

Oscar De La Renta

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.
