This is an exceptional 50s era cocktail dress bearing a label that reads “Roger & Gallet Parfumeurs 62 Faubg Saint-Honoré Paris”. The dress is hand sewn, Parisian couture. Roger & Gallet is a venerable Parisian perfume house, founded in 1862. I have found one other dress attributed to them, but I don’t think that they would have produced much clothing and I would assume that this was made by one of the Parisian couture houses for them. It is made of plissé silk chiffon over a black taffeta base. The silk is arranged in such a way so as to appear to be “emanating” from the bow positioned at the left waist. It is made in a sleeveless style with medium width shoulder straps. It is cut with a slight flare down to a below-the-knee length. This should fit a medium size, but please note the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the dress into account:

Bust: 35”-36” around / Waist: 27” / Hips: 36” / Length: 42”, measured flat from the top of the shoulder strap to the hemline

Condition: This piece is in very good condition with no stains, pronounced wear or tear - there is a slight bit of discolouration to the lining at the hemline, but this is a very minor consideration. This dress looks to have seen little use and was well stored over the years.

This is a stunning dress, sure to be noticed - great acquisition for the fashion collector!
