Vintage 1978 Givenchy Haute-Couture Gingham Print Silk Princess Coat Dress

$1,700

About

Givenchy, the name itself evokes glamour, refined elegance, simplicity and style. Givenchy's trademark of sculpted lines and luxurious fabrics make his work easily recognizable. This gorgeous black & white gingham-print metallic accented silk & velvet cutwork coat dress from his 1978 Haute-Couture collection is a beautiful example of his brilliance. I adore the slightly puffed shoulders and slim zipper-wrists. The buttons are sparkling glass black-jet and there are hidden snaps to create the perfect fit. The pleated princess skirt finishes this garment off with a perfect femme fatale vibe. As Givenchy said, "The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress." Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:Free Sweep Length top to waist:11 inches Length waist to hem:42 inches This vintage Givenchy haute couture custom-made garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working handset back-zipper and zipper-wrists. This garment is over 40 years old and is truly stunning.
