1960s Orange & Gold Metallic Silk Brocade Larry Aldrich

What a stunner! Made by Larry Aldrich this exceptional 1960s cocktail dress is made from a lovely bright orange and gold silk brocade fabric. The fabric is very unusual and the abstract print that runs over its surface is very pretty - it has a very "mod" feel to it. I love that it has delicate pops of a soft running through it - a color combination that should not works, yet does brilliantly. The cut is a simple shift shape that gently flares out as is nears the hem. The waist is left undefined and the shape has an sculpted feel and is very sixties chic. It closes with a hidden set zipper down the front so you can zip it right up to create a high neck or leave it open for a more daring look. It is utterly gorgeous! In person you get an extra bit of richness as you can really see the 3 dimensional texture the fabric has as well as the fabulous shimmering gold effect. If you love the pictures you will love it more in person! An exceptional vintage dress. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a paler orange silky rayon and closes with a front, hidden painted metal zipper.
