Vintage 60s/70s Ned Gould Black & White Herringbone Sheath Dress

Vintage late 1960s to very early 1970s sheath from Ned Gould for Miss Continental amps up its ladylike silhouette with a bold colorway and graphic pattern bordering on Op Art.

Made of a woven fabric (likely a cotton/rayon blend) that features an oversized black-and-white herringbone pattern, the dress nods cheekily to traditional woolen tweeds. Bands of contrasting red linen or rayon define the fitted bodice, with a black "belt" of embroidered red-and-white daisies encircling the waist.

The sleeveless, scoopnecked dress closes in back with a nylon zipper, and there is a sheer white lining in the bodice only.

Labelled "Miss Continental by Ned Gould", the dress is tagged a vintage size 10. Exact measurements are: Bust 36", waist 27", hips 36", bodice length 15", and overall length 38".

Ned Gould studied with Christian Dior and Jacques Fath in Paris and began his design career in New York before settling in California. He designed for various labels--California Girl in the earlier 60s, Miss Continental in the late 60s and early 70s, Le Courant in the mid 70s, and N.R.I into the 80s—as well as under his own name.

This striking dress is in near-excellent condition with faint yellowing to the lining at the back neckline.
