Gone in Sixty Seconds

This 1960s cocktail dress in black mousseline with allover black paillette embroidery with a slight tulip skirt came into RARE this morning and as we walked into the store so did a client who scooped it up. She kindly let us hold onto it for the afternoon so that we could photograph it.

Pirovano is not well known in the United States but is an Italian haute couture house that had a store on Via Montenapoleone. All of the Milanese Alta Moda would have shopped at Pirovano. This dress is beautifully made and extremely glamorous. We could easily see Claudia Cardinale rolling around on a fur carpet with David Niven in The Pink Panther wearing the same dress.
