Fall 1969 Andre Courreges Haute Couture Pink Micro Mini Dress or Tunic
This tunic dress was shot for the September issue of Madame magazine giving us the collection date. and there is what looks to be a very near matching coat that can be found in The Fashion and Lace Museum's collection. Who knows, maybe the girl that buys this one might one day find a version for her own so that she has the complete set. This is a remarkable example of his Haute Couture work during that time period. A piece in this shade of pink and in this exemplary condition is a rare find.
This beautiful, sculptural, numbered Haute Couture tunic is stunning. If you are the right size and height you could also get away with wearing this as a micro mini. It actually sits a bit tiny on my dress form and I suspect that given the other piece in the collection that year that I could find photos of that it would have been worn as a mini over tights. The fabric is that classic Courreges thick textured wool jersey that despite its thickness is still light in weight and wearable. The slight texture to it and absolutely superb seaming details give the dress a rich, luxurious feel. Each curved seam and the soft but sculptural cut create a beautiful line that curves in at the waist with a flared hip. A half belt detailing anchors the back and is detailed by two large white buttons. Tow more buttons sit on the front of the tunic and it wraps over itself and buttons to close. Each button hole, including the back one which are both completely functional, are finished to couture standards. It has no collar and the front plunges quite low with a hidden hook along the neckline to hold it perfectly in place. Very chic and very couture in feel. Extremely collectible and rare. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a hand set ivory silk. The tunic crosses over itself at the front and buttons to close. Has an extra button sewn inside. Hand finished throughout. The color is a slightly different shade of pink - and even better I think - than how it photoed. Looked to have been worn very little, if at all. Numbered D7079
