1950s Dead-Stock Irene Low Back Dress

Very rare and very fine Irene dress that is in exceptional, unworn condition. A true collectible and a definitive piece of fashion history! Irene pieces are hard to find and to get one with the original store tags still attached is just a treat! Made of a fine silk the dress is cut in a sleek sheath that nips in at the waist and follows your curves. A hand set curved inset sits at the bust for a little visual detailing. The back is where all the drama is. It is scooped rather low and has two wide bands f hand set curved fabric detailing the scoop. Large flat buttons add more interest. I love the simplicity of the dress and yet when it is on it is far from feeling simple! It has a understated sexiness and is just divine! Unworn, dead-stock in perfect condition. Item# DD797
