HEINZ RIVA 1970s Vintage Silk Maxi Dress Size XXS-XS

850 EUR
A beautiful and rare maxi dress by Swiss couturier Heinz Riva, dating back to the early 1970s. The dress is made of a soft and fluid silk featuring a graphic print in vivid colors - yellow, green, blue, coral red - against a black background. The cut of the dress with a very nice nod to the 1940s features a fitted bodice with a v-neckline and the most beautiful little sleeves. From the hips down the floor-length skirt flares out widely as there are large v-shaped fabric panels inserted. Cut and execution are masterly; although the dress is from Riva's Prêt-à-Porter line the dress is largely sewn by hand. It closes with a back zipper and is made of 100% silk. Unlined.
