Gorgeous Guy Laroche Haute Couture numbered silk-chiffon gown dating back to his romantic 1970 spring-summer collection. Guy Laroche was an assistant to the famous Jean Desses before starting his own design house in 1957. He is best known for his excellent themed tailoring and this rare garment is a perfect example of his genius. The dress is fashioned in highest-quality double layered silk-chiffon with metallic gold Slavic inspired embroidery. The capelet-collar bodice has bohemian style billow sleeves and a chic low-cut plunge met by a stunning floral applique. I love the nipped waist with matching tassel belt. The free flowing maxi length goddess skirt finishes this materpiece off with the perfect ethreal vibe. A rare piece of wearable Parisian couture history.
