MARIE CAILLOT 1960s Vintage Haute Couture Evening Shift Dress Size XS-S

450 EUR
A wonderful Haute Couture dress from Parisian designer Marie Caillot. The dress is made of a very unusual fabric - a slightly sheer black silk crepe that is flocked and encrusted with glitter in parts. The dress is entirely lined in silky nude fabric which together with the black top layer creates an astonishing silvery sparkling overall effect. This shift dress features a slim cut with slightly flared bracelet sleeves and a knee-length skirt. Neckline and hemlines are adorned with intricately beaded and sequined trimmings. The dress closes with a back zipper and a metal hook & eye at the back of the neck. The dress is entirely done by hand. Made in France.

Condition
Excellent. Slight discolorations to the lining that remain after dry-cleaning, very minor and not visible from the outside.
