Vintage 1960's Gene Shelly Colorful Atomic Swirl Sequin Wool Knit Hourglass Gown

$1,400

About

Mid-century Gene Shelly designer garments are in a class of their own. They are always fully-sequined by hand and fit to flatter the figure. This early 1960's treasure has a fantastic graphic atomic swirl design in the most beautiful colors. The base is an ultra-soft lilac purple wool-knit and the sequin work is done in the matching hue also with iridescent blue, green, pink and marigold. Just look at the detail pictures! Though the hourglass fit is rather seductive, the 3/4-length sleeves give it a balanced elegance that Gene Shelly is known for. I love the nipped-waist hourglass column skirt silhouette! This is the type of garment celebrity vixens, like the Supremes, made infamous. Extraordinary and a rare find to be in such pristine condition. Measurements (The knit allows stretch so there is flexibility) Bust: 36-40 inches Waist: 28-32 inches Hips: up to 44 inches inches Sleeve Length: 20 inches Total Length: 55 inches This Gene Shelly designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back zipper. This garment is over 50 years old and is truly stunning.
