1960s Jeweled Velvet Marie McCarthy for Larry Aldrich Vest

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This jawdropping vest by Marie McCarthy for Larry Aldrich is made of heavily embroidered and beaded velvet and lined with shot emerald silk. The design, richly picked out in greens and golds, brings to mind a Byzantine mosaic or medieval stained glass. The little crystals and jewels, which are nestled into clusters of gold stitching and delicate scrollwork, add a stunning degree of depth and texture to the piece. There are some missing however it does not detract from the over all effect of the piece, please note photos. Perhaps the most wonderful aspect of this top is its versatility: it would look incredible as an accent piece for an evening gown or a little black cocktail dress, but it could also be worn over a tank top with jeans and heels for a night out or a dinner party. It works as shown or open as a vest. No matter how you choose to style it, this top will be a conversation piece and a gorgeous addition to your wardrobe. The crystals shine like none other.
