Italian Black Charmeuse Dress, 1980's

$350Asking Price


This 1980's Italian dress design offers a sculptural silhouette starting with dramatic shoulders shaped by pads and sleeve pleats dropping to a sarong style drape at the waist and hips. It zips and hooks at the back with hooks at the side for the dramatic drape and zippers at the sleeve cuffs for the perfect fit. The black charmeuse fabric appears to be a silk blend with some stretch for a comfortable fit and ease of movement. What appears to be a classic polka dot pattern actually proves to be a more interesting gray shaded ivory sphere that resembles a moon phase. Constructed with quality details including a panel to hide the zipper in the back and a silk lining in the skirt. The label is missing though the style and construction is reminiscent of Ungaro designs of the same period. Very good vintage condition.
