GIVENCHY c. 1977 Vintage Ombré Silk Chiffon Maxi Evening Dress Size S
This ethereal Givenchy evening gown from c. 1977 is made of a fine silk chiffon with interwoven horizontal stripes and the most beautiful ombré colour gradient from deep blue to light green. It features a wide neckline with an entirely elasticated edge and a high empire waist that is elasticated as well, so the bust area is accentuated in the most beautiful way, especially with the short silk bow tie at the center front. From the empire waist down, the dress flares out into a wide a-line skirt, ending with a generous flounce at ankle-length. The long billowing sleeves finish with elasticated cuffs. The dress closes at the center back with a hand-set zipper and a metal hook and eye. Hand-finished details. 100% silk. Bodice and skirt are lined, the sleeves are left unlined and slightly see-through. Made in France.
Excellent vintage condition, minor signs of general wear and age to the fabric, nothing significant or detracting.
