1980s Christian LaCroix Golden Lace Gown
A stunning Christian LaCroix dress that shows his mastery in combining colors, fabric and textures. Every element on the gown has a depth and texture to it separate from the others and yet it all works perfectly together. The body of the gown is a subtly metallic lace that has an almost ombre feel to it. The muted autumnal colors flow into each other in tones of deep browns, olives and russets all with a hint of metallic to them. This flows tot he ground, widening as it nears the hem and it has a longer train at the back. The bust is set high and their is a metallic thread taffeta ribbon set under it and finished in a bow at the front. The bodice is covered in large "leaves" of gold that are fine threads to form a netted lace feel. Woven into this are delicate pink toned flowers int he same lace. It is just exquisite! Excellent. appears unworn condition.
