1980s Floral Suede Applique & Linen Pleated Dress
This pure brown linen Paul-Louis Orrier dress dates to the early 1980s. It features a large genuine suede floral applique on the front, and a pocket on each side. The skirt is lined and the top is unlined, and it does up the back with 11 buttons. The sleeves are ¾ length with a 1.75” cuff. The Paul-Louis Orrier label is no long attached but the hanger loops have "Paul-Louis Orrier" written on them, so we can guarantee its authenticity. Our dry cleaner wasn’t confident that he would be able to clean the dress without discolouring the suede, so it has not been freshly dry-cleaned. However, it appears to be very clean with no marks or odours. Made in France, it is in excellent condition, with only some slight colour variation on the suede.
