Rare 1960s Jean Louis Couture Wine Velvet Evening Ensemble w/ Ombre Feathers


One of a kind and simply fantastic velvet evening set by Jean Louis. It is hard to describe what is its best asset; impeccable design and construction, fabric (like butter), the color (we can taste the rich wine), and condition (has stood the test of time). The ensemble consists of a full length halter dress and an impressive jacket to match with ombre feathers. The fit and flair silhouette creates a beautiful waterfall of velvet that drops just below the ankle. The jacket adds opulence to this outfit with ostrich feathers on the sleeves and neck. This is one of the exceptional outfits where you can wear either piece alone and still easily be the best dressed!

Fun Fact: Jean Louis created the "Happy Birthday, Mr President" dress for Marilyn Monroe in 1962 when she sung for President Kennedy.
