1960s Malcolm Starr Silk, Sequin, Beads & Crystal Embellished Dress


Elinor Simmons designed for the Malcolm Starr label from the early 1960s to 1972 and you can see her handiwork in this classic Starr piece with its almost sculptural lines and elaborate bead, sequin and rhinestone work. The dress itself has a simple A-line cut with capped sleeves and a high scooped neck. The upper portion of the shoulders and sleeves are finished in a silk organza that is the same color as the more shaped silk used through the body. Onto that is absolutely beautiful hand done detailing that runs across the neck and on each sleeve. The bead work and rhinestones here really catch the light and it is quite beautiful. The bodice skims over the torso with darling little capped sleeves and a high set waist line. The skirt comes out from under the seam at the waist in a widening curve of fabric and I love the fullness of it. The silk used has a almost polished cotton finish to it but with a touch more texture. The fabric choice really holds the shape of the dress beautifully and the color is wonderful. I love that it has pockets hidden away at the inset seams that run down the front. It is really a lovely dress. Excellent condition. Fully lined in a pale green silk and closes with a low painted back metal zipper. It is open between the zipper adn the hook at the neck It looks to have been worn very little if at all. Note that color is a little more of a 'celery' then how it photoed. The elaborate rhinestone, sequins and beads on the upper bodice are all set by hand. Shoulders: 14.5" Bust: 18.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 14.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: to 26" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 14.5" from neck to waist Skirt: 27.5" from waist 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.
