This is a striking and contemporary looking dress by high end American label Scaasi that dates from the 1990s. It is made of the highest quality wool in a red and black striped pattern that combines to give this dress the most flattering fit. The striped sections are wide and sit nicely across the body when worn giving an elegant shape across the bust as well as on the waist. The dress has a neat round neck and long sleeves making it a versatile wardrobe staple which would also look great layered over a polo neck.
The label reads a US 2 which we think is accurate for todays sizing so therefore it will best suit up to a UK8. The dress is comprised of a 100% wool exterior and a 100% acetate lining. Condition wise, this dress is in excellent vintage condition with no faults of any note.
