ARCHIVE - 2003 Runway Stella McCartney Pink Satin Corset Dress

£0.00 Sold out

Seen on Kylie Minogue on the cover of the December 2003 issue of British Vogue, this collectable pale 'oyster' pink satin two-piece is by Stella McCartney. The skirt is tight-fitting with a panelled construction and falls to knee length with a thick waistband and hem. The dramatic slit at the rear plays to the raciness of the silhouette and allows for ease of movement. The corset top is detailed with grosgrain ribbon and layers of frothy tulle. It has a stiff satin and grosgrain belt at the waist which secures at the rear with two concealed hook-and-eye clasps. The zips at the rear of both the skirt and the top have a pale pink ribbon pull. Well-documented, this two-piece walked the runway as part of two separate looks for the British label’s Fall 2003 show. The overt sexiness of the corset top was paired back with a matronly tweed midi-skirt and McCartney contrasted the tight satin skirt against romantic lace.

This Y2K styling epitomises the noughties era and documented pieces make the best fashion investments. This ensemble is presented in excellent vintage condition with no issues, only gentle signs of wear noted. Marked a French 40, this is rather on the small side and better suited to a UK 8-10 or US 4-6. There is movement on the measurements below as both garments have some stretch. The fabric is composed of 59% silk, 33% Nylon Polyamide, and 8% Spandex Elastane.

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.
