1970s Roland Klein Black Pleated Chiffon Cocktail Dress



This vivacious 1970s black pleated chiffon cocktail dress is by Roland Klein for Marcel Fenez and is charming, feminine and in excellent vintage condition. The dress is comprised of a black crepe underlay cut into a simple shift style silhouette overlain with finely pleated chiffon fabric. The underlay has a simple line with a tailored bust, neat waistline and straight cut calf length skirt with a zip fastening to the left. By contrast, the overlay is loose fitting and fluid, with a full circle skirt flaring in soft folds from the waistband. The texture of the fabric between the hem and the knee alters direction on alternate pleats to create a chevron design juxtaposed with the vertical pleats on the upper half of the skirt. The top of the bodice is made up from a circle of pleated fabric elasticated to form a Bardot neckline that stretches across the shoulder and falls over the bust to form a large frill. To consolidate the piece, there is a tie belt in chevron textured fabric to match the hem. This lovely dress is perfect for parties and would fit up to US size 4, UK size 8.
