1980s Geoffrey Beene Silk Knit Gold and Black Halter Evening Dress

About

Entrancing halter evening dress from Geoffrey Beene. This dress features a lamé halter with clasp closure on the neck and back. It is juxtaposed with a luxurious black silk jersey knit draped silhouette. The hem of the dress is finished with horsehair and creates a beautiful flowing hemline. This is the perfect dress for your next date night, whether it be virtual or in person! 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.
