Vintage 70s CELINE Op Art Multicolor Shirt Dress M/L
Another unique and TRUE VINTAGE 70's couture shirt dress from France, a CELINE in excellent vintage condition. The dress is made from what appears to be a soft and stretchy jersey with a mohair content but lightweight, with a beautiful OP ART multicolour, graphic print I would call modern baroque in purple, aubergine, burgundy, teals and more...with burgundy crepe trims and collar.
The dress is a shirtwaist dress, with 3 wide pleats in front on the skirt. Each pleat hides multiple pleats like a fan that opens when walking. Front buttons, small, rounded matching burgundy buttons with gold metal detail, replicated at the cuffs. The same burgundy crepe fabric trims the pointy collar and backs it, very chic. The dress does not have the original belt it is pictured with a random suede leather TEAL belt. Very small shoulder pads, lightly puff sleeves, the dress is not lined.
I believe it is an authentic *CELINE* Paris. The label attracts attention with its carriage design and no name. The only other houses with a carriage logo are Hermes and Lanvin. Hard to really tell. Voila! This is a vintage dress, most of the other labels on the dress have been lost so identification is mostly visual, design and label.
SIZE: label indicates a 44F and a 46Italy, in modern sizing this would be equal to a 12-14. Will fit a medium to a larger medium and even a large size(shirtdresses need not be tight on the body or bust) for a bust of 43" unstretched, perhaps a bit more if needed but not recommended.
Bust - 43"
Waist - 38"
Length - 43"
Sleeves length - 23.5"
COLOUR: as seen, a muted/antiqued combination of purples, magenta and teal, burgundy and gold, with burgundy buttons and trim. Colours appear faded but it is not wash wear or age, these must have been the original colours because the burgundy trim is very bright by contrast.
FABRIC: there is no label to indicate, it must be a combination, stretchy jersey and lightweight (feels like a very light wool? mohair? and viscose combination I really can't tell). Trims are definitely a light wool crepe.
CONDITION: The dress is in EXCELLENT vintage condition, pre-owned but well cared for and PRET A PORTER condition. Interesting vintage dress!
