Early 1980s Courreges Patent Detail Dress

This is a fabulous and early 1980s example of Courreges that has all the feel and mod appeal of an earlier piece! It is in excellent, unworn condition and really a great little dress! Cut in a classic shift with lots of subtle details. The shoulders are cut straight across and quite wide and each is topped with a triangle of patent. Another patent detail is set on a an angle at the chest and meets the sharp notched neckline - a familiar detail that Courreges was infamous for. It is cut shift like with a slight bit of shape to the waist. The skirt widens from there with inset kick pleat panels set on either side of the hip to give it a true sixties feeling A-line shape. Excellent, unworn condition
