Cream Silk & Green Beaded 1960s Strapless Cocktail Dress UK Size 10
Exceptional 1960s cream silk dress featuring distinctive floral beading over the bust. Fine rocaille pieces comprise the overall design in shades of citron green and gold. The construction of the dress exudes quality, and has been meticulously hand finished. This coupled with the smooth, silk fabric and thick satin lining gives the dress a deeply luxurious feel. The corset remains discreetly hidden beneath the front panel of the piece, which falls over the straight knee - length skirt in a tidy peplum. The detail at the back of the garment is delightfully unexpected - skilfully pleated silk ties are twinned at either side of the zip and move through a band at the lower back, to create a superbly sculptural train. This extraordinary piece is in excellent original vintage condition with only very slight signs of wear. Unlabelled and would best fit a US size 8, UK size 10.
