1971 Givenchy Haute Couture Silk Dress

This is a stunning day dress and a beautiful example of couture during this time period. Best of all it is the same pattern as the evening piece worn and documented by Catherine Deneuve! The dress is constructed on an impeccable level. The silk is very fine and has a snake print in green the completely covers it from shoulder to hem. The bodice is cut to skim and the waist cinches in. You can give it further definition with the matching belt! The sleeves cuff at the wrist and have a slight puff above. I love the skirt - it is flat pleated around the hip and then opens to soft knife pleats that give it movement. It is extremely well made as one would expect. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Fully lined in silk except for the sleeves. It closes at the front with the buttons as shown and has a side, hidden set zipper. Each cuff closes with a button. The belt is original and in excellent shape.
