1970s ROBERTA DI CAMERINO "Dream" Orange Yellow Trompe l'Oeil Print Maxi Dress

$888.24

About

This fabulous notice-me Roberta di Camerino maxi dress termed "Dream" on the still present original paper tag dates back to the 1970s. It comes directly from the Roberta di Camerino archive in Italy (see archive's stamp on picture 10) and is unworn. The design shows a dynamic and instantly recognizable Roberta di Camerino illusion print of what could be either draped pleats or swirling flames on a vibrant orange to yellow gold gradient background starting from the bodice to the hem. This effect is called trompe l'oeil and means a "visual illusion in art, especially as used to trick the eye into perceiving a painted detail as a three-dimensional object" (Oxford Dictionaries). The dress has that perfect seventies cut with a V-neck with pointed collar and long sleeves with cuffs that close with the most amazing "R" embossed gold-toned metal buttons. The floor-length skirt flares out at the hem. Made from a high-quality polyester jersey of a good weight, the dress has some stretch. It is unlined and slips over the head. The label reads "Roberta di Camerino Made in Italy". Tagged an Italian vintage size 46. New old stock. The Roberta di Camerino's archive stamp on the inside shows slightly through near the hem (see second last picture). Priced accordingly. Shoulders: 42 cm – 16.53" (from shoulder seam to shoulder seam) Bust: 96 cm – 37.79" (bust darts; measured across under the arms; unstretched) Waist: 90 cm – 35.43" (unstretched) Hips: 104 cm – 40.94" (unstretched) Sleeve Length: 58 cm – 22.83" Length: 155 cm – 61.02" (measured from shoulder to hem) Measurements are taken flat and then DOUBLED for bust, waist and hips. Approximate Modern Size: L
