Lace Cocktail Dress By Dior, Spring/Summer 1960

This strapless, white lace cocktail dress was probably designed by Yves Saint Laurent at Christian Dior for the Spring/Summer collection of 1960. The dress is fitted onto a silk corset and is made from a large-scale floral lace, which is supported by layers of silk and nylon net. Some of the lace pattern has been cut away and then reapplied to the material to give the dress a three-dimensional surface.

The House of Dior often created short evening and cocktail dresses from lace and other delicate materials for their Spring/Summer collections.

A pair of shoes with a similar floral pattern were made by Massaro of Paris to complement the dress.

This dress is incredible. Shaped at the front and loose at the back. That is a couture shape.

The fact that he was so young and capable of creating clothing as such is a true testament to his strength as a designer. He was kind of like a designers designer, if you will. Just so strong and sure of his work, even though his personality may have begged to differ. Some of the best work the House of Dior has ever seen!
