1960s Bob Bugnand Silk & Crystals Dress

Bob Bugnand pieces are a rare find indeed and this gown is just beautiful. It makes me think that is the type of piece that a girl like Audrey Hepburn would have worn - with her hair piled high to emphasize that sixties chic goddess feel it has. The skirt flows in a lean sheath from the empire waist. Its made of a pale pink silk crepe and has a hand set zipper. The top is all classical renaissance - a deep raspberry velvet adds to the rich, luxe feel of the piece and the waistline, cuffs and neckline are edged in a 4 band edging o sparkling prong set rhinestones in a deep red and pale pink that draws the two colors of the gown together. The rhinestones are glass so the weight of the dress is substantial but when worn it feels just right and not cumbersome at all. Extraordinary! A wonderful, dramatic and rare piece in excellent condition!

Bust: 18" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Empire waist at seam: 15" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Natural waist: 15" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: 18" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Bodice: 10" from shoulder to empire waist band
Skirt: 45" from empire waist band to bottom hem

Fully lined through the bodice in a burgundy silky rayon and through the skirt with a linen look mix fabric in pale pink. It closes at the back with a painted metal zipper. There are a few tiny pills to the crepe - a natural occurrence with this fabric. A tiny row of indents about 1" run on the front velvet where the rhinestones pressed into the fabric from storage prior to my acquisition. It lessened with cleaning and I am fairly confident that it would disappear after a second. The pink is paler in the skirt and the bodie richer in color than what has photoed.
