Dress, Evening House of Givenchy  (French, founded 1952) Designer: Hubert de Givenchy (French, born Beauvais, 1927) Date: ca. 1956 Culture: French Medium: silk

Christian Dior Dress Gown circa spring/summer 1953 In "May," flowering grasses and wild clover are rendered in silk floss on organza. This "simple" patterning of meadow-gone-to-weed is composed of the tiniest French knots and the meticulously measured stitches of the hand embroiderer, suggesting that for Dior, it was not only that beauty resides in the most rustic, but also that the most successful artifice is a beguiling naivété.
