1970s Model 150 Haute Couture Valentino

Exceptional and rare Haute Couture day ensemble from the Valentino Atelier is something special indeed! A simple cut silk dress and the matching top stitched jacket have numerous couture details that as you inspect each piece more closely become apparent. The dress has a simple scoop neck and long sleeves. Each sleeve ends in a tight cuff accented by thick hand carved MOP buttons. This allows the sleeve to pouf up above the cuff for a pretty feminine detail. The waist nips in and then the skirt is given volume by panels of silk inset with triangles of solid navy silk. Each panel is individually cut and pieced so for all the simplicity of the front he interior is a masterpiece! The jacket is a solid blue with stark white top stitching - a Valentino signature! I love the rounded collar and then way the belt slips through the design element at the front - this allows the wearer to choose to wear a belt or not and it does not break the design. Two belts are included - the dotted one you see and a solid blue one. This gives the wearer a multitude of options on how to style it. All pieces are marked clearly with the Valentino house model number 150. Excellent condition and an exceptional example of Valentino Couture!!

The jacket is fully lined in handset, very high quality silk, even the top set pockets are lined in this silk! All couture construction and it closes with very thick MOP buttons. The buttons an the cuff are decorative yet the buttonholes are still properly finished and constructed behind them! The dress is lined with silk and silk organza and that skirt is completely piece together by individual panels! Hand set, fine metal zipper at the back and MOP buttons on each cuff. There are two belts - the dotted one and a plain blue one (not pictured. Each belt's buckles shows war on the back but present well front he front. All 4 pieces are marked with the Valentino Haute Couture Model number 150.
