1960's MADAME GRES fuchsia beaded slub silk tabard & silk chiffon skirt ensemble

About

Very rare slub silk tabard with unusual beading and rhinestones with matching silk chiffon skirt from Madame Gres dating to the late 1960's. Haute couture ensemble with hand finished seams. Skirt can be worn with closure at front or back. Ensemble its a French size 36 or US size 2, narrow sized 4. Approximate measurements: length 60", waist 24" and skirt length 42" in front and 44" in back. Made in France. Condition is excellent and constant with age, use and fragility of ensemble: there are a few very small dark marks to the back of the neck of tabard (pictured), a faint mark at front of skirt hidden under tabard (too faint to photograph, embellishment at closure has some very small fracturing and a couple of tiny imperfections to silk chiffon (also to faint to photograph). None of the aforementioned minor issues are visible except under very close inspection.
