1960s Oscar de la Renta Metallic Dot Dress with Green Sash
This is the second time I have had this dress and I love it just as much the second time around. It is a beautiful full length dress by Oscar De La Renta in his classic hostess gown silhouette. It is constructed from a beautiful silk brocade whose color is a deep raspberry pink that has a purple undertone to it. The base fabric has a simple matte finish that then has a metallic thread in the same color woven through it to create the designs on the dress that you see. The metallic thread catches the light beautifully and the dots and curved peaks that run over the dress from top to bottom add a stunning visual interest. The sleeves are slightly full and caught up in a defined cuff in at each wrist. A simple scooped collar tops the simple bodice. From there the waist nips in and you can add more shape with the brilliant green metallic fabric belt whose fabric has been done on the opposite way of the dress - the base is metallic and the dots are matte. Below the waist the skirt billows out and flows to the ground in a beautiful cascade of fabric. Excellent condition
Fully lined in a purple silk and closes at the back with a hand set, painted zipper. Each sleeve closes with two hidden, fabric covered snaps. The belt is in excellent condition. Note that though the waist and bust are fuller it is cut smaller through the shoulder.
