About

This is a fun little piece from Givenchy during the 1970s. It is an easy to wear, synthetic jersey fabric that makes it very comfortable and practical as it travels and wears to well. We often look down on these jerseys from this time period and many people are surprised to see pieces from the larger ateliers producing dresses using it, but you have to remember that at the time this was a cutting edge fabric with all the promises of long life and easy care and high end designers were on the forefront of utilizing a pieces or two in their collections for their clients that traveled extensively. The print is a deep blue with a pretty floral print scattered over the surface in red and white. The neckline is square cut with straps that curve up and over the shoulders. The bodice has been draped and gathered all the way around the torso. From the waist the skirt falls in an elegant and slim column to the floor in a sleek column. This is a gorgeous little piece that can easily go from day to evening. Excellent condition.
