Beautiful Couture labelled cocktail dress "Jacques Heim Actualité" and dating from the beginning of the fifties. The Label laterally indicates "Jacques Heim Actualité Cannes Paris Biarritz". Beautiful cream bright thick satin silk with an extraordinary pattern. A so elegant Lapel Sleeves, big low-necked collar inspired by man's jacket. The dress closes laterally by hooks and pressures. There are some long folds from the shoulders till the bottom of the dress which underlines a feminine and distinguished silhouette in the continuation of the French Fashion "New Look" introduced by Christian Dior. Very beautiful condition and preservation.
It is really a rare historical labelled piece of Couture, with the first tries of Prêt à porter Ready-to-wear clothing said Bis; after the Second World War, here named "Actualités". However, this dress has a Ready-to-wear clothing only the name, because the conception and the hand sewn finishes are of course Haute Couture and are connected with the experience of the French Maison Jacques Heim.
