Rare 1970s Yuki Halter Caftan Digital Print Jersey Dress

About

A loose and easy caftan cut dress is always an amazing vintage staple but to find one by the Yuki brand is a treat. It is such a rare label and I love his work. This piece shows his love of minimal seaming and has just two seams down each side and then that wonderful halter neck detail. The neckline brings the dress up and into a point and then wraps around the neck to leave the collarbones bare. I love that you can also "cheat" it and hook the halter off to the side and create a more one shoulder feel and it still works. From that defined neck it falls to the floor in a wide expanse of jersey - opening quite full and yet still falling wonderfully. The washable jersey is screened with an oversized digital and floral print that feel very modern and like wearing art on the body. It is shockingly sexy despite its full, full cut because of the way the fabric moves when you do. It is just gorgeous and a real find. Excellent condition Unlined and slips on to wear with one strap closing with hook and eye and on one side with more hook & eye. The cut will allow it to fit a large range of sizes as it will just drape more on a smaller figure. Made of a washable polyester knit jersey. Bust: 18.5" flat across from side seam to side seam where its fitted Waist: open Hips: open Length: 61" from top straps to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-MED Reference Photo: Shown on Cherie. This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
