Little Black Couture Dress in embroidered Satin Circa 1920
Reserved until 12 November 2023 for exhibition in France, available after
Amazing little black dress, probably Haute Couture, with a minimalist graphic representing a drop of water and dating from the 1920s. Straight bag dress, V-neck, long sleeves in black Duchesse satin with a waxed sheen. Short skirt integrated into a wallet whose undulating panels are folded down in front and tied into a belt! Beautiful black and gold thread embroidery on the collar and cuffs. No lining or claws. Probably a major French couturier. Tiny slight marks on one side, otherwise very good condition of colour and conservation.
