1978 White Knit Courreges Maxi Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is an amazing Courreges dress that looks like it could have stepped out of a time capsule. It is a true white and has absolutely no discoloration. A tiny bikini halter top with crossed straps tops a long skirt. I love the ribbing that defines the waist and hem. Slips over the head to wear and is constructed from a chunky cotton/acrylic mix knit. Tagged a vintage Courreges 0
