GIVENCHY 1980s Vintage Silk Taffeta Evening Dress Size XS

495 EUR
A beautiful Givenchy evening dress from the 1980s made from a rustling black silk taffeta with an interesting moiré effect. The cut is - as always chez Givenchy - very intricate and executed masterly. The dress features tapered sleeves with beautiful shoulder seam detailing and zippered ruffled cuffs. The bodice is fitted with a velvet button panel and an opulently ruffled front with a sculptural appeal. The skirt is widely flared and very full - it moves fantastically when on. It sits a few inches below the knee and has hidden side pockets and a ruffled hemline with a black velvet trim. The dress features an internal waist stay and closes with front buttons and a side zipper. It could be worn with a belt as there are delicate loops to the waist. 55% silk, 45% synthetics, unlined. Made in Switzerland.
