1970s Guy Laroche One Shoulder Print Dress
Guy Laroche assisted to Jean Desses before opening his own couture house in 1957 and those years spent working under one of the true masters shows through his work. He is known for his cut and this little dress is a beautiful example of it. It is a seventies take on the 40s swing dress and is so fabulous that I am a little enamoured with it! A vibrant abstract print in an array of colors is screened onto a light, crisp cotton. It has that perfect airy summer feel to it and the bright colors just makes it more so! The top is a simple fitted one shoulder affair and ties into place. Down one side of the dress is a row of buttons - this side opens completely and knowing that it feels very scandalous when on. The skirt is a fitted pencil and on the opposite hip from the buttoned side sits a swag of fabric that gives the skirt a feel of volume and that true forties feel. It also perfectly offsets the tie atop the shoulder. Really a wonderful dress! Excellent, appears unworn condition
Both the skirt and top are unlined. The skirt has an elastic waist. The top closes with a row of buttons down one side.
