1970s Maurice Vivid Pink and Turquoise Jersey Caftan Dress

About

I have had this same dress in a black and yellow color combination in the past and this one has even more impact I think. This printed dress is by the Maurice label, a company who was a contemporary of labels like Pucci and Leonard in the seventies. Maurice used the same type of print work in his pieces but on a more affordable synthetic jersey rather then the silk jerseys used by those other labels. This also makes his dresses very easy to care for as they are easy to care for and wear extremely well. The jersey was still of high quality too so you really get a lot of bang for your buck with this label. I love the nod to the kimono and caftans of the day in the cut of this dress. The bodice is cut so that it crosses over itself creating a nice V neck. The waist nips in and has a wide contrasting print band that circles the waist for definition. The same wrapped effect that the bodice has is carried over to the skirt with the print used to highlight the cut of the dress. The skirt opens along the wrapeed edge so you get a bit of leg showing when you walk or sit. The impact of those two vivid colors set against each other is fabulous and I love the wide straight cut of the sleeves. The style is versatile too - style it for day with flats or paired with heels for evening events. It will work year-round and travels extraordinarily well. I love it. Excellent overall condition with one note below to review. Unlined and closes at the back with a painted nylon and metal zipper. The fabric is signed throughout the design. There is a spot on one sleeve, I have photoed it for you. Sleeves: approx 20 Shoulders: no true seam as the shoulders are dropped Bust: variable as there are no true side seams Waist: 13.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: to 21" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 13" from neck to top of waist band + 4" band Skirt: 39" from bottom of waist band to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
