1960s Geoffrey Beene Purple, Pink and Cream Silk Gown with Silver Polka Dots

$2,800

About

Youthful & fun scoop neck evening gown done in a sheer metallic polka dot over silk with a pink bow belt. Silk satin gathered skirt is an off white. Sheer sleeves button at cuff. Zips at back. All lined in silk. Geoffrey Beene began his career in the 1950s, designing under numerous New York houses including Teal Traina, finally opening his own label in 1963. Beene was incredibly conscious of the human body, and was particularly regardful of the figure in motion - as Beene once said “clothing is nothing until it hits the body." His designs were created to work with the client’s body, encasing it lightly and giving it a more artful structure. Beene's reinterpretations of dress formality, use of synthetics, and unusual combination of materials (accessories in acrylic and diamonds, for example), set him aside from his contemporaries who focused on the business of fashion, rather than the artistry of fashion.
