1970s Louis Feraud Haute Couture Orange Silk Dress


Attributed to French fashion house Louis Féraud, Norwegian fashion designer Per Spook joined the atelier in the early 1960s and went on to become Louis Féraud’s artistic director. He designed the brand’s lauded haute couture collections until 1977. Known for his cerebral tailoring and subtly whimsical detailing, this vibrant midi dress is crafted from tangerine silk printed with berries and geometric shapes in emerald green and navy. With a wide scoop neckline and pin-tucking at the shoulders, the gathered cuffs combine to form billowing balloon sleeves - a common detail of Feraud’s 1970s’ designs. Tonal buttons secure the front, hidden by a placket printed with playful, spotted scallop shapes and navy stripes. Domed tangerine buttons secure cuffs printed with coordinating patterns.

This lively dress is a fun piece for a summer event and is in excellent vintage condition with no issues. The dress appears to have been unaltered and looks as good as the day it was made. From the collection of a chic, Parisian socialite who had an extensive haute couture wardrobe. Unlined, it is a good fit for sizes UK 10-12 or US 6-8. Our model is a size 6-8 and 5 ft 4 / 163 cm, this dress was very roomy on her.

Will you set anything aside for me before I come?

We are happy to find anything you may be interested in from our website - please let us know a week in advance. 

We also have an extensive offline collection. If you let us know your size, style, favourite colour to wear and perhaps your budget, we can browse through our archive in advance of your appointment. 

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Clients may wish to bring modern shapewear when trying on garments from certain eras, especially the 1950s. Vintage clothing was often worn with undergarments that shaped the waist and as such is tailored for them.

We have a huge variety of slip dresses and petticoats to complete your look; many of which are also for sale.

You may also wish to bring your favourite footwear. We often find a classic pair of nude shoes work well when trying on, or a pair in gold or silver.

Do you have a price range?

Many of our lower-priced pieces (under £150) are not available to buy online. Our prices range from £80 - £600 for separates. Dresses start at around £150 and go up to £2,500 for the very best antique pieces and designer vintage. Our bridalwear ranges from £300 - £3,000.
