Mariano Fortuny Midnight Black Silk Peplos

$13,025

About

Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo created this gown in a Venetian palazzo and it was originally purchased in 1919. Beautifully shaped in luxurious black silk the gown is delicately pleated in the secretive Fortuny manner with heat and ceramic rods. The silk was dyed several times to enrich the color. Murano glass beads are strung on silk cord along the seams providing a smooth graceful silhouette. The gown is inspired by the Greek chiton and meant to be worn with-out undergarments; a racy suggestion for the early 1900’s. Hand rendered label on inner side seam. Displayed on a size 6 mannequin and considered one size. This Peplos measures at 56" in length and 16" from shoulder to shoulder. Please note the ribbon belt is not original.
