Documented 1971 Malcolm Starr Sequin Covered Dress

About

I always love being able to date a piece and when this wonderful little Malcolm Starr dress landed in my studio I instantly remembered seeing it before. Its twin was used in a 1971 Harper's Bazaar editorial. The dress is a glamorous take on the more fitted silhouette of the day. The base fabric has a slight stretch to it and a gorgeous pattern that has a slight far East feel to it. Over this is are glossy clear sequins that entirely cover the dress. Each is hand sewn into the fabric and spaced perfectly apart so that the entire dress has the feel of being covered in a glassy skin that catches the light as you move. Each of those little squares was hand applied and it is surprisingly light and fluid in person. The neckline is cut with a high collar and the sleeves are long and slim. The shape is kept simple and the fabric will hug your curves. At the front there is a high center slit that allows you full movement. It looks wonderful on. The simplicity of the cut combined with the high glamour of the fabric and sequins give it an incredible high end feel. Excellent condition. Fully lined, including the sleeves, in a black stretch nylon and it closes with a back painted metal zipper. Sleeves: 23.5" Shoulders: 14.5" Bust: 17.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 14" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 19.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 56" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML Reference Photo: Harper's Bazaar, 1971.
