Pre-Fall 2008 Stella McCartney One Shoulder Silk Chiffon Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Bias cut, silk chiffon layers give this beautiful dress a light as a feather feel. Stella McCartney makes exquisite evening pieces and I love this one from the pre-fall 2008 collection. Pre-fall and pre-spring collections are always produced in smaller numbers and that makes the pieces from them them more valuable as vintage for the future. This dress was also a favorite on the red carpet that season and was seen on both Scarlett Johansson and Poppy Montgomery. It is made of a soft bottle green silk chiffon that is cut on the bias with a second inner layer in a matching silk. The lightness of the fabric and its bias cut allows it to drape and flow beautifully. It feels more like a column when the wearer is standing still but once you move you get a wonderful fullness. The way it is cut is very couture in feel and it has a definitive Madame Gres, classic Greek feel to it. The entire dress suspends from the tie at the single shoulder and the final effect is very romantic and feminine. I love the pleating through the bodice that extends down into the waist and then softly opens into the skirt. Excellent condition.

The skirt is fully lined in a second layer of matching colored silk chiffon that is also bias cut. The bodice is lined a a matching silk. It closes with a hidden side zipper and ties at the top of the one shoulder. It is tagged a modern 40 but McCartney pieces fit small so you should know your sizing in this label or make sure to check the measurements below
