Wonderful and rare 1950's James Galanos couture black silk and wool coat dress. Extremely high quality tailoring and fabric. Fabric is a medium-weight silk/wool blend, slight sheen, somewhat stiff so that fabric holds shape. Pointed round collar with a large decorative button at the neckline. Dress opens up the front with several snap and hook/eye closures. Unique tailoring at the shoulders creating an off-the-shoulder-shoulder seam and 3/4 length sleeves. Attached tie around the waist. Full poofed skirt, tucks around waist. The inside is completely finished with a black silk lining. The skirt is lined and finished with a black silk organza and then there is a black silk underskirt, same fabric as lining of bodice. Label reads, "Galanos for Amelia Gray, Beverly Hills." Amelia Gray was a high-end boutique in Beverly Hills that helped launch the Galanos label.

Condition: Excellent. No holes, stains or wear. Almost near mint except that the dress has some very slight marks around the inside collar. This should come out with a cleaning. No other issues. Beautiful and timeless dress.
