Chic 1960s Courreges Paris Black Shift Dress

I have had the twin of this dress in the past and its as good now as the first time. This is a fabulous little black Courreges shift dresses and it is one of his classic designs. The fabric is jet black, light wool with a fine ribbed texture running through it. It has little cap sleeves and a square neckline that is finished with a two button detail at the front. The skirt flares out at is nears the hem. I love the seaming detail that runs down the front and that there are hidden pockets set along those seams. It is impeccably constructed as one would expect. This is an instantly recognizable, classic Courreges design. Excellent condition.

Tagged a Courreges size 00. Fully lined in a black silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Hand finishes and pockets at the front. It was a touch too small on the mannequin and does close perfectly at the back on the right size girl.
