ARCHIVE - Scaasi 1990s Wool Red & Black Stripe Dress

£0.00 Sold out

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.

His designs were noted for their tailoring and he became synonymous with glamorous evening wear and cocktail dresses.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Clients may wish to bring modern shapewear when trying on garments from certain eras, especially the 1950s. Vintage clothing was often worn with undergarments that shaped the waist and as such is tailored for them.
