1970s Rudi Gernreich Plunge Knit Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


A rare and fabulous sexy plunge dress by Rudi Gernreich that is in an unusual and subdued, for Rudi, basic black. One sees such wild graphic designs from him normally that a black dress is almost more interesting in his case! And what a fantastic dress it is! Made of a lightweight wool knit, the bodice is very sexy rounded shoulders, cap sleeves and a front plunge that scoops right down to the empire waist! The waist is cut full and loose so it infinitely comfortable for the wearer to have on. The skirt flows from the waist to just above the floor. It has enough fullness to give it a sleek yet full shape that perfectly balances the deep V front. Collectible and wearable - it is Rudi Gernreich at its best. Excellent condition.
