Louis Feraud Vintage Sheer Embroidered Dot Dress, 1970s
An early success, Louis Féraud launched his fashion house in the early 1950s in Cannes, France. With strong silhouettes and a meticulous usage of color, Féraud dressed the likes of Brigitte Bardot and the French elite well before debuting his first haute couture collection in 1958.
In line with his powerful silhouettes, this 1970s dress is done in a hypnotic black organza that is embroidered with confetti speckles of lavender, grass green, and dandelion. The squared U-neckline is accentuated with a ruffled detail that is referenced at the flared wrist line of the long sleeves. Nipped at the waist, the dress is fitted throughout the bodice with light gathers while the skirt falls elegantly to ankle level with a full sweep. The sheer fabric is a stellar play with transparency and color making this dress nothing short of a magnificent evening look.
