French Couture 1950s Red Silk Butterfly Print Evening Dress With Bow

$795

About

This opulent 1950s French couture silk satin evening dress by Perrine has exquisite construction and is of superb quality. The luxurious deep red satin overlay has an unusual butterfly wing print and is beautifully tailored to ensure drama and movement when worn. The sweetheart shaped neckline is supported by 1 inch straps in matching fabric, with flattering sunburst pleats and a diagonal bow at the centre front. The overlay fabric is gathered into neat pleats at the front of the dress graduating from a single point beneath the bow and are stitched to the bodice as they gradually extend outwards, eventually softening into the line of the skirt. The mid-calf length skirt has a generous underlay of silk taffeta in olive green, reinforced with netting to create volume, whereby by the overlay is masterfully arranged into a wrap-around effect . An inward facing pleat falling from the centre reverse just below the waistline enhances the shape of the skirt with a modest tail. The manner in which the fabric has been sculpted and fashioned to create this alluring silhouette is something special. In excellent condition, this garment is petite and would best suit US size 0-2, UK size 4-6.
