1960s Jaques Heim Pleat Strip Skirt “Car Wash” Dress

Jaques Heim


Beautiful body-skimming black cocktail dress by Jaques Heim! The sleeveless dress features a bateau neck with a triangular plunge back. The pencil skirt of the dress is layered below strips of fabric, bringing to mind a cleanly deconstructed knife pleat skirt, or the pteruges of a roman centurion!

...Okay, thats a bit of a stretch, however, you will absolutely command attention in this fabulous dress! This dress looks Uber similiar to the ”car wash” Dress made famous by Pierre Cardin. Heim died in 1967 and whilst designing to the end, there is discussion by some experts that believe Heim created the look.
