1990s Valentino Coral Beading on Net Cream Silk Top

About

This is an extraordinary find. It is a stunning piece of Valentino with an extensive detailing of coral beading mixed with tube beads hand applied on silk netting and then used as detailing on the cream silk base. Valentino made this coral look famous in his 1969 collection and in the 1990s looked back on that collection and produced a small collection of pieces in homage to his earlier work. The workmanship on this is exquisite and the lines perfection. The cream silk base is cut in an oversized T shape that sits loose and easy on the body. The fabric itself has the feel of a polished raw silk with that same silk texture to it. The neckline is cut wide and the portions of the beading detail have a touch of transparency so you get the feel of skin underneath and around the collarbones. The The same beaded netting detail is used to finish each sleeve. I love the deep neckline - it all does up with little hooks but you get the sense of bare skin underneath there as well. If all of this was not enough, it is lined in a silk satin so feels like heaven on the body. It is very chic and very refined and very Valentino. Excellent condition. Lined in a fine cream silk satin and slips on to wear. The neckline closes with a series of hidden hook & eye. Hand beaded and extremely well made. Meant to be work loose and easy. Shoulders: no defined seam Bust: to 19.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist to hips: to 19.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 21.5" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
