1960s Geoffrey Beene Deep Blue & Graphic Silver Trim Dress

About

This navy and silver dress is a wonderful and early example of Geoffrey Beene's work and to me completely sums up the Beene aesthetic - a simple, almost monastic cut combined with unexpected details and the bold use of graphic lines. This combination makes a high impact in the simplest of ways and solidified Beene as one of the great American designers. The cut on this dress is supermodel long and lean. The placement and use of that vertical silver cord detailing that runs down the front only adds to the length and line he wanted to create. The double set silver line is only broken by the deliberately placed silver detail at the empire waist - creating a striking off set cross. Domed silver buttons run down the front between the double row of silver. Simple but dramatic, perfectly constructed and because of the type of wool jersey used, the line and shape remains in that stark column when on. A wonderful, statement piece from a master. Excellent condition. Fully lined in a fine blue silk that is hand set. It closes with silver toned, rounded metal buttons down the front. Note that there is a nip in the fabric near shoulder (photoed) and a similar flaw near the seam at the hem - it is priced accordingly and both are stable and held up to cleaning. Each cuff has hidden set zippers. It unbuttons all the way open so you can use it as a layered piece as well. Sleeves: 23" Shoulders: 15" Bust: 18.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 57" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
