Tiziani Couture By Karl Lagerfeld Ivory Mod Stripe Doll Collar Silk Dress, 1960s
Tiziani Roma, an Italian fashion label founded in 1963, was fortunate to have the fresh and adept skills of Karl Lagerfeld. Designed at the beginning of his career, this mod 1960s dress is a stunning example of Lagerfeld’s prowess. Made from an ivory silk with red, black, and camel pinstripes, the dress is simultaneously youthful and sophisticated.
A doll collar, which rolls effortlessly over the neckline, is accentuated by a slim black satin bow. The asymmetrical front opening is detailed with black satin edging and buttons, alluding to the inherently chic tendencies of many traditional Asian garments. Three-quarter length sleeves cap generously around the shoulder, revealing high quality and skilled tailoring. This dress reconsiders the prim and proper of the 1950s by turning school girl innocence into chic charm.
