Early 1970s Malcolm Starr Red Silk Print Sequin & Metallic Gold Thread Dress

About

The colors in this dress are amazing and when combined with the gold metallic thread that runs through the silk from top to bottom, the final effect is just beautiful. The exterior is a rich red silk chiffon that has a secondary print of blue and taupe running through it. Woven through the silk are little golden dots made out of a lurex thread. This adds a subtle shine to the entire dress. Picking up on that are curving bands of gold sequins that have been hand applied onto the silk. These following parts of the screened design. Some parts of the pattern have an even denser application of the sequins. This multi-layered textural feeling makes the fabric feel rich and exotic. This is then layered over the interior red silk lining through the skirt and front bodice. The back and sleeves are not lined so you catch a glimpse of skin through the silk. The sleeves are wonderful. Each extends from the bodice in a wide swatch of fabric and then taper down as they reach the wrist to create a subtle billowing through the upper arm. The neck is simple and slightly scooped. The skirt falls from the piped detailed waist to flare out as it nears to the floor. It is a beautiful, dramatic piece and the red, gold and other colors presents as being more vibrant and far better in person then how they photoed.
