1960s Numbered Guy Laroche Couture

Guy Laroche began his fashion career under Jean Desses in 1949 and just under ten years later he opened his own house in 1957. He made extraordinary pieces of couture and this dress is one of them and an earlier sixties example of his work. It is stunningly constructed and in museum quality condition. It is also a wonderful example of the mod baby doll look that swept the fashion world at the time and still feels fresh even now. A testament to how great design stands the test of time! An inner dress made of a good quality black silk crepe gives the wearer the feeling of some inner structure. The exterior however is all fabric and extravagance. On, it is much fuller and has much more movement then how it photos. It is cut on the bias so naturally flares out from the body. The hem is finished in a† tiny strip of back velvet so it is weighted properly. I love the tuxedo bib front and the matching cuffs. The buttons are glass pearls, each in a metal base. It is sixties supermodel once on! A fabulous piece and in excellent, museum quality condition. Item# DD814
