Vintage Guy Laroche Organza Print Strapless Maxi Dress & Jacket Set
French fashion designer Guy Laroche was known for his elaborate evening dresses and tailored suits. Beloved by young Parisiennes and American fashion designers alike, he designed clothing for private clients at his Paris atelier. Not one for extremes, Laroche’s designs remained classic and pretty throughout, always showcasing his excellence as an artist and skill as a craftsman.
This vintage Guy Laroche dress and jacket set is done in cerulean blue silk organza that features an abstract print in shades of cranberry, black, white, and yellow. The strapless dress begins with a bustier neckline that frames the decolletage. The skirt falls in soft pleats from the fitted waist to a maxi length at the ankles, creating a classic columnar silhouette.
The matching short jacket is unlined, adding a sensual sheer element to the ensemble. It begins with a simple jewel neckline and angular puff sleeves that reach just above the wrists, adding a note of drama and volume to the silhouette. The jacket may be worn open or closed, allowing for versatile styling. This set is beautifully tailored throughout while the abstract print lends the fabric a pleasing visual movement of its own. A special addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this elegant dress and jacket are the perfect choice for an evening soiree or special occasion.
