Pristine Mid 2000s Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci White Cotton Gauze & Lace Dress w Matching Underdress
This beauty is from the mid 2000s and I believe is was from one of the 2016 collections. For both the resort and spring collections he worked extensively with laces and created pieces similar to this one. This would be a piece that was produced for retail only as it was not shown on the runway. It has all of the feel of Tisci era with its use of stark white with a camisole feel and lace edging. He excelled in this body skimming feel without being extremely fitted. It is a spectacular dress and has never been worn so it is in pristine condition. This would make an amazing wedding dress for the bride looking for a non-traditional choice or as an alternative dress in a more extended wedding celebration. And of course it could also be worn to any event.
The first thing you notice about the dress is that almost weightless. It is made out of a feather light cotton guauze that gives it this light as air effect. It is cut in a long lean column that widens out as it nears the hem. The collar is edged in two beautiful panels of lace stacked on top of each other. The lace has been lightly gathered to create a slight ruffle effect as it circles your neck. The dress skims over your bust, waist and hips from there and the dress comes with its original inner white silk slip. The slip is short so that you get the feel of full transparency over the legs. Having the top layer of fabric have that touch of transparency also gives it a bit of depth while having the short slip underneath makes it wearable. On the bodice there are more lace panels that are set on an angular pattern that run down the front of the dress and then wrap around to the back. From there to the hem you have sections of horizontal pleats made out of the same fabric interspersed with more panels of lace. Each sleeve is finished off with yet another wide panel of the lace for the prettiest romantic finish. A high slit runs up the back for a flash of leg. It is an absolutely beautiful dress. It has never been worn and still has its original Givenchy hang tag. Excellent condition
The slip acts as the lining and it slips over the head to wear. The outer dress closes with a hidden set zipper at the back. Tagged a modern Givenchy 38. Original hang tag is still attached and it has never been worn
