Rudi Gernreich for Harmon Knitwear Dress with Attached Trompe l' Oeil Sweater

About the Item

Rudi Gernreich designed this dress for Harmon Knitwear in the 1960's and it is a very modern and clever design. The tank dress is made from a wide vertical striped fabric and it slips on over your head. There are snaps on the left shoulder of the dress and the fabric has some stretch. The humor is provided by the appearance of a narrow vertical striped cardigan casually tied over the shoulders. This is strictly to fool the eye, the sweater is a decorative element of the dress. It is attached at the back and shoulders. This rare example from Rudi Gernreich is in excellent condition. Measurements; Bust 34" Waist 28" Hips 36" Length 59"
