1960s Galanos Jewelled Dress & Jacket
However much you think this looks fabulous in the photographs it is infinitely better in person. This is truly one of those extraordinary, couture level pieces that every collector and vintage lover needs to own in their collections. Everything about this piece is perfection. It is in perfect condition and appears to have never been worn. It is entirely finished by hand - you can clearly see the hand work down to set the lining into the dress. The dress is constructed of long vertical panels that are folded and knife pleated flat upon each other, without creating bulk, so that as if near the skirt it turns into pleat work. The green is brilliant and there is a raised design woven directly into the exterior fabric. The jacket is as fantastic as a stand alone piece as it is as the completion of the set. Huge jeweled buttons adorn the front and I love the top stitching on the collar and those decorative flaps on each hip. A vented pleat is worked down the back seam. No shortcut was taken in the construction and it is a stand out piece in every possible way! Excellent, appears unworn condition.
