Vintage 1968 Geoffrey Beene Chantilly Lace Colorful Striped Silk Illusion Dress



A chic and timeless garment that takes the "evening dress" concept to a whole new level! Geoffrey Beene made strong impressions with his courteous manner as well as his highly original style. He was a champion of minimalist design. His body-contoured dresses were marvels of cut and proportion. Beene’s view of style was more about function than fad. He also cautioned against getting too concerned with the latest trends. His clothes were structured but never rigid and rely on the craftsmanship of careful detail. This breathtaking silk-organza & chantilly-lace number is a beautiful example of his genius. The fabric concept is a masterpiece- colorful striped print with an elegant illusion overlay. The sash ribbon adds a perfect nipped-waist silhouette. So beautiful and unique. Measurements Bust:35-36 inches Waist:up to 27 inches Hips:up to 40 inches Total Length:50 inches This Geoffrey Beene documented designer garment is in excellent condition with no stains or holes. Perfectly working back-zipper. Only sign of age are a few minor tears to the lace which are not noticeable when worn. This dress is over 50 years old and is truly exquisite.
