1960s Numbered Couture Givenchy Dress

This would have been done while Hubert de Givenchy led the Givenchy House and is a couture, numbered piece! It is an exceptional example of day wear for the period and immaculately constructed. The exterior is a deep rust knit jersey - cutting edge fabric of the day - and that is lined in the highest quality silk hand dyed to match the color. All the interior work is by hand and the lining and zipper are hand set. I love the subtle sexuality of the back buttons and hidden snaps lie between each so that no matter how you move they keep perfectly in place. The neckline is high and no seams break the line of the bodice - they just sleekly turn into the slightly dolman sleeve. The skirt is set with a slight gather and the curve of the seam ever so gently curves downward so the illusion os of height and leanness. Understated but refined is is an exceptional piece. Excellent, unworn condition.
