Geoffrey Beene Floral Silk Peasant Dress Ensemble, C.1980



Geoffrey Beene's two piece dress ensemble is a masterful mix of a casual peasant style silhouette with luxurious details including a gorgeous silk crepe fabric, coppery bronze metallic braid trim and a mohair hemline. The autumnal colors of the floral print beautifully incorporate shades of rust red, browns, neutral putty and a light gray with a hint of lavender. The striped mohair hemline lends an unexpected textural detail in shades of rust red, brown, camel and sage green. The top has a blousy pullover construction with faceted crystal buttons at the cuffs and the pleated skirt hooks at the waist with hidden side pockets (always a plus!). This special ensemble is from the Geoffrey Beene Archives which included Mr. Beene's personal collection of original samples for runway and trunk shows. The archival tags remain attached to both pieces and the top also has the remnant of an adhesive tag attached to the designer label. Very good condition. SIZING & MEASUREMENTS The size is not marked though the ensemble best fits a U.S. size 4 with attention to the following measurements. For visual reference, the mannequin in the photographs is a size 4 and the waist of the skirt was a bit too tight but the hooks could be moved, if desired. TOP (Blousy & Boxy Construction) Bust 40" Waist/Hips 39" Sleeve Length From Underarm to Cuff 19" Shoulder Length Taken Across Back 16" Length From Shoulder to Hem 23" SKIRT Waist 25" (Hook Can Be Moved Up To 1") Full Hips 50" Length From Waist to Hem 38"
