1960s Structured Irene Cream Dress

Impeccable and very rare structured dress by Hubert Latimer for Irene Lentz that is of really exceptional quality. It is almost architectural in is strict cut and immaculate seaming & construction. Made of a fine cream wool if skims the body and flares out at the A-line skirt. The cut is forgiving and gives the wearer one clean, long line. The curved seaming at the front acts as the dress's embellishment. Small discreet pockets are hidden along those seams. It closes at the front under what looks like the extension of the collar detail. This allows the line of the back of the dress to be unbroken by a zipper and again gives the illusion of length and lets the seaming shine. Amazing, seemingly unworn condition.

Sleeves: 22" long
Bust: 20" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
