Sold - LOUIS FÉRAUD 1960s Vintage Space Age Graphic Dress XS-S
A rare and fabulous Louis Féraud dress from c. 1969. The dress features a clean, fuss-free shape with a fitted bodice with small stand-up collar and narrow sleeves with zippered cuffs. The skirt flares out and sits a few inches below the knee. Heavy (wool?) fabric with a striking cream and black graphic print and Louis Féraud signature. The dress closes with a back zipper, metal hooks & eyes at the back of the neck and a side zipper. Except for the sleeves it is fully lined. Made in Germany.
This dress may or may not have been an inspiration for Pierpaolo Piccioli's Valentino dress from Spring/Summer 2019, pictured above (look 19, photo via Vogue Runway). The proportions and lines of the print as well as the cut including the horizontal seam are very similar.
Overall excellent. There are several brownish marks - please have a look at the pictures. There is minor perspiration discoloration to the lining (no odour, not visible from the outside).
