1970s Givenchy Silk Chiffon Floral & Metallic Heart Print Dress
With the recent passing of Hubert de Givenchy, pieces that were made while he still headed the atelier seem to be even more special. This dress is gorgeous with its vibrant color palette. It mixes a floral print and pretty colors for a bright, fresh feel. Worked into the printed silk are a scattering of gold hearts that are made out of a metallic thread. These give the dress a subtle shimmer. as they catch the light. Anchoring the print is a solid blue silk satin edging that is used at the cuffs and neckline. The sleeves are quite full and puff out above the buttoned cuffs. There are three full layers that make up the skirt. The top layer is cut on the bias cut and is a silk chiffon. The inner skirt is a tissue silk and between the two is a layer of silk organza that helps to give the skirt a touch of volume. Excellent condition with one small note to review below.
Fully lined in a yellow tissue silk with the sleeves left unlined and an extra layer of yellow silk organza through the skirt. It closes with a side painted metal zipper below the waist line and fabric covered snaps above that. The front buttons are functional. Each cuff buttons to close.
