Exquisite 1990s Red Silk Chiffon Valentino Dress Set


Valentino knows how to cut to perfectly flatter a woman's body and few can come close to the masterful techniques he perfected over the decades of his career. here we have a very sexy red silk chiffon halter top and skirt. It has that fresh and modern simplicity that the nineties did so very well and could easily be mistaken for a piece from a current collection. Both pieces are cut on the bias and made of feather light, fine silk chiffon, draping perfectly over the body. The color is absolutely fantastic - the perfect clear red that flatters most skin tones - I think it is even better in person then how it has photoed. The simple cut top is suspended it from tiny straps that curve up and around each shoulder. The bust is gathered and a ruffled panel drapes down the front. The skirt is long and lean with an unusual "car wash" hem - two layers of silk chiffon top each other and each has long slits that create a fantastic and unusual effect. These also allow a glimpse of leg to peek through with every movement. It is just stunning and the cut it is very sexy. Excellent condition Both pieces are are made of two layers of the silk chiffon - the skirt in a matching red and the top with an inner nude silk layer as well as a third layer of silk under the bust area. There is also an extra layer of nude silk chiffon through the inner top portion of the skirt. The top closes with a side, hidden set zipper as does the skirt. Hand finishes.
