Madame Gres 4 Piece Ensemble

About

This incredible four piece ensemble from Madame Gres is drop dead gorgeous, and incredibly sexy as well. My client said that every man in the room was captivated by this dress!

The dress has a burnt orange bodice made from wide bands of satin ribbon sewn in place at the front. They wrap and tie at the neck and waistline forming large drapey bows. There is a series of hooks and eyes at the left side and a hook and eye at the back of the neck as well. This is paired with a long flowing divided skirt in a heathered brown wool jersey cut on the bias. There is a center back zipper and a hook and eye for closure.

There are two other pieces with this ensemble; a toga like wrap and a shrug, both made from the same soft wool jersey as the skirt. The long wrap is cut in an asymmetrical style and there is a single shoulder strap. It also has a single hook corresponding to a single eye on the waistband to keep it in place. This piece can be left to drape or tossed over your bare shoulder. The shrug is a long rectangle sewn like a tube at both ends. This versatile piece can be worn loosely draped, gathered at the shoulders, or any other style you prefer. Both the top and the skirt bear the Gres label. There are some small marks on the bodice, otherwise all four pieces are in excellent condition.
