Blow Bugle Boy Blow

This lovely Haute Couture gown created under the guidance of Hubert de Givenchy is a classic little black evening sheath covered from top to bottom with black bugle beads. There is an erratic strip of cobalt blue beads running across the gown that gives the piece a segmented look. The gown has a back knee high slit and a good amount of room in the hip area. Amazingly, all of the beads are still attached to the gown (we did do a little restoration), the bead design is flawless! Beading can easily go very wrong, while it does have a great deal of "sparkle quality", the subdued construction and bead motif make it a nicely understated chic but decadent knock-out gown.

Givenchy Couture black and blue bugle bead evening sheath, c.1980's. Contemporary size 6. SOLD
