1970's Hanae Mori Couture Green Floral Garden Silk-Chiffon Caftan Dress Gown

About

Gorgeous 1970's museum-quality, iconic and instantly recognizable caftan gown by Hanae Mori. Whilst on a Paris holiday in 1960, Mori had a fateful fitting with Coco Chanel. She claimed this meeting changed her life and she challenged herself to realize her own dream of designing haute-couture. She returned to her small Tokyo office, where she had been designing significant numbers of costumes for directors including Ozu, Oshima and Kurosawa. By 1965 she had launched her own collection and had orders from prestigious stores such as Neiman Marcus. This gown is everything you look for in a Hanae Mori garment. Made of feather light silk-chiffon that has been custom screened with one of her stunning watercolor large-scale garden psychedelic prints. The dress also has a built-in sleeveless print underlay so it literally feels weightless! The mix of green, pink and yellow with a splash of white is pure genius. I adore the middle-slit winged bodice that are cut quite wide. The unique high-neck illusion bodice really brings this show-stopper to another level. The skirt flows to the floor with a perfect goddess vibe! Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Hips:40 inches Total Length:56 inches This vintage Hanae Mori Couture dress is in excellent condition with no rips or stains. Closes with a hand-set back metal skirt-zipper. Two small pin-holes by upper back shoulder. This gown is over 40 years old and is truly stunning!
