About the Item

▪ Archival Atelier Versace evening dress ▪ Creative Director: Donatella Versace ▪ Fall-Winter 1998 ▪ Sold by One of a Kind Archive ▪ Crafted from bias-cut steel grey silk chiffon ▪ Features long flared sleeves with pleated puff shoulders ▪ Antique-style chainmail at the halter-neck and armband on one sleeve, adorned with intricate crystal embellishments ▪ The back of the dress boasts striking barbwire-style metal straps, also adorned with crystals ▪ Built-in boned nude corset for added support and structure ▪ The trim of the sleeves and skirt of the dress are adorned with meticulously hand-sewn tiny beads ▪ While this design was originally showcased at the Pret-a-porter Fall-Winter 1998 show, it has been exclusively made-to-order for special clients, evident by the Atelier Versace label it bears. ▪ Features a concealed zipper at the center-back, ensuring a seamless and refined finish ▪ Size: approx. XS/S (since Haute Couture pieces transcend standard sizing conventions, the indicated size serves as an approximation. To ensure a flawless fit, kindly request measurements ▪ Made in Italy Condition Report: ▪ The built-in corset exhibits a minor tear, which in no way compromises its functionality, and importantly, remains inconspicuous when viewed from the exterior ▪ The chainmail utilised in this piece has been intentionally treated to achieve an antique appearance. As part of the design aesthetics, certain sections of the chainmail appear worn to emulate a sense of age. While these deliberate variations are consistent with the collection's desired aesthetics, it is important to note that these should not be mistaken as flaws.
