Vintage 1960s yellow Rembrandt Original dress
Sunshine day! This canary yellow genuine vintage mod-style 1960s dress is a striking piece of tailoring and 1960s fashion history. I wonder where this old girl has been before? Walking across London Bridge, through the doors of Harrods or perhaps past the gates of Buckingham Palace? This is a Rembrandt Original, the prestigious dress house in London that commissioned several high-profile designers, including Louis Feraud, to create pieces for their label. In one of my photos, I’ve shown a 1969 Louis Feraud advertisement (shared by Catwalkthreads) and as you’ll notice, the style of this dress is very similar. Feraud did indeed design a range for Rembrandt, but as this dress is missing a Feraud label, perhaps it is the in-house Rembrandt version of Feraud’s looks of the era.
The fully-lined dress is in mint condition. It’s made of thick rayon that almost has a texture resembling linen. It must have once had a belt as there are belt loops, but unfortunately the belt has gone on its own journey elsewhere! Upon photographing this stunner, I noticed that the lining of the dress is hanging lower beneath the hemline of the dress (please see images). I’ve chosen to list it as is because the dress will hang differently on each person and the final buyer may wish to adjust the dress length altogether. The hem is generous with a 5 centimetre width, so there’s certainly room to let it down if needed. Dress is labelled as a vintage size 12 but it would best fit a modern-day Australian size 8, or a small size 10. Please see measurements and sizing guide below.
