WILLIAM VINTAGE Jacques Heim 1955 Haute Couture Beaded Gown

WILLIAM VINTAGE Jacques Heim 1955 Haute Couture Beaded Gown

£4,975

Perhaps best known for creating Brigitte Bardot’s infamous gingham-print bikini in 1956, Parisian designer Jacques Heim created this navy gown for his atelier’s 1955 Couture collection. Discovered by London-based vintage-fashion specialist WilliamVintage, it encapsulates feminine mid-century virtues with a classic tulle-bounded sweetheart neckline that’s accented with silver-tone zardozi embroidery. The plum-purple silk-satin boned bodice is hand-sewn with hundreds of seed beads, glistening faux pearls and faceted blue chaton stones before falling into a layered midi-length A-line skirt – a defining feature from the golden age of Haute Couture – which consists of flowing gathers of navy and blue tulle and a clay-red silk-satin underskirt. Keep the intricate embellishment in focus by keeping your décolletage elegantly bare.
