Dear Loyal Decades Blog Readers, this dress is not officially vintage! We won't try to fool you and say this is a vintage Rochas, rather it is another one of the divine archival Rochas gowns by Olivier Theyskens that we are loving to share with our clients and selling them pretty quickly to them, too! Decades sells vintage couture. Something becomes vintage when it is normally at least fifteen years old, but with a proliferation of designers of a certain age passing, retiring, or being replaced, many pieces that are more current are transitioning to becoming archival collectibles and their vintage value is inevitable. Now we won't sell a current dress by an active designer and parade that dress as vintage. Rather, those wonderful pieces are conveniently sold through our sisterstore Decadestwo, which consigns the best of current and modern designer clothing and accessories. However, we have an eye on the transitioning modern stars such as the aforementioned Monsieur Theyskens! Hence our love of these Rochas gowns, many of which are one of a kind, such as the concoction of metallic lace, organza petals, and, a train for good measure, too! Let the picture do the talking, but do note this is the only dress of it's kind from the start of the Rochas/Theyskens partnership around 2003. There are no others and once this is sold, the new owner will own a one of a kind Olivier Theyskens for Rochas gown! This is a sure- fire vintage in the making masterpiece.

Rochas by Olivier Theyskens organza petal and metallic archival lace one of a kind gown, 2003. Sample size (i.e., be Karlie Kloss's size or skip this!) SOLD
