1970s Valentino for Bergdorfs Hand Worked Gown

$ 2,700.00


This striking pink gown is made in Italy by Valentino's Boutique collection for Bergdorf Goodman New York. The design plays with diagonals and angles, with a one-shoulder neckline, an asymmetrical ruched waistband, and a skirt which falls back on itself in elegantly draped folds. Although each individual element of this gown is asymmetrical, it has been expertly designed so that all of the pieces come together in balanced symmetry, with each diagonal off-setting the next to move the eye along the figure. Along with the expert styling comes expert construction. An invisible zipper is hidden in the side seam, and inside the bodice a separate waist band takes pressure off of the garment itself to preserve the zipper and give the gown a much longer life, all built upon an internal bodice. Such care is expected from a design house as respected as Valentino, and the attention to detail will make this gown timeless. The bold fucia hue is flattering to the complexion and will stand out in any room and cheer up any season. The column cut is interesting and body-conscious, yet classically elegant. With such a perfectly balanced design, this gown is an ideal choice for your formal occasion.
