About

This incredible Azzaro ensemble, consisting of a metallic crop top and turquoise maxi skirt, is the ultimate in summer party dressing. The top is constructed in a metallic blue and silver knit and embellished with clear, blue and pearlescent beads, while the hem is trimmed in turquoise and silver chain mail fringing. The dramatic sleeves feature the same chain mail detail with bands of knitted fabric holding them in place on the elbow and wrist. The chain mail gives a fun peek-a-boo effect and the deep v-neckline at the back adds even more allure to this sexy two-piece!

Renowned for dressing the elite women of French society, Loris Azzaro launched his fashion line in Paris in the mid 1960s and garnered huge success by 1968. Often creating glamorous, form fitting evening dresses that featured ornate beading or daring cut away detail, Azzaro dressed numerous celebrities over the course of his long career, including Raquel Welch, Sophia Loren, Kate Winslet and Nicole Kidman.
