1960s Lagerfeld for Jean Patou Silk Dress

Really an exception Jean Patou that would have been designed while Karl Lagerfeld was in charge of the atelier during the early sixties. It is absolutely amazing and though not numbered is from the Atelier so is most likely a True Couture piece or at least a demi-couture dress but not the RTW line. A heavy chocolate silk is bias cut and has a nod to the twenties in its cut - a low low dropped waist seam suggest the flapper silhouette. Those spectacular balloon sleeves then give it a modern twist! The neck is high and simple and the skirt flows and swings perfectly! It comes with its original wide and long, long sash that you can belt, wear at the neck or even use turban style! Off the hanger one might think it a rather simple dress but once on it transforms - as all of the best cut dresses do! Excellent, appears unworn condition.I love it!

Fully lined in a fine deep chocolate brown silk. Hand finished inside to couture levels. Closes with a hand set, hidden painted metal zipper. Each cuff closes with fabric covered buttons and the button holes are properly finished - the cuffs even have little snaps so it sits just perfectly!
