Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A chic and timeless garment that takes the "day dress" concept to a whole new level! Geoffrey Beene made strong impressions with his courteous manner as well as his highly original style. He was a champion of minimalist design. His body-contoured dresses were marvels of cut and proportion. Beene’s view of style was more about function than fad. He also cautioned against getting too concerned with the latest trends. His clothes were structured but never rigid and rely on the craftsmanship of careful detail. This sculpted mod linen dress is a beautiful example of his genius. I adore the classic sleeveless button-down bodice with white piping and matching belt. The skirt is just as fabulous with its chic over-sized side pockets design. This is the type of day dress you will reach for over and over. So beautiful and in wonderful condition!
