Charles James for Samuel Winston, gray mohair cocktail dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An incredible example of James' simplicity and elegance.

One single front pocket on the left side which appears to be suspending the drape from the back-side of the dress.



It appears that there was at one time a very small belt, as there are small thread stays on both sides of the waist where it would have been, however it is not present.
