1960s GALANOS Classic Black Crepe Mini Shift Dress
“I like to play with the fabric – the more I work with it, the more I see what it can do.” James Galanos, 1978
An original dress by the infamous designer James Galanos, this easy-chic vintage 60s dress has beautiful tailoring. Made of thick wool crepe and fully lined, this little-black-dress is easy to dress up or down.
Galanos was known for his ready-to-wear line, which was often compared to couture. He became known for his work in chiffon and evening wear was a specialty. He also designed elegant suits and dresses for day. Paired here with a vintage Chanel belt (not included), it really is hard to believe that this dress is even vintage from the 60s. Modern but well-made dresses like these are hard to find in modern day. Invest in this easy black dress and have a new go to in your closet for years to come!
Fit and Fabric Notes:
