Original 1940s 40s Pink And White Stripe Rayon Dress With Back Bow And Bustle in Schiaparelli Style
This beautiful full length rayon dress was made in the 1940s. It gives us huge Schiaparelli vibes with the use of shocking pink and black stripes on a white background, which has been further accentuated with a black robe and flower pattern. The dress boast a sailor style tie knot collar with black lace around the neckline. This collar extends around the shoulders and develops into a shawl collar at the back of the dress. The back on the dress is embellished with a huge fan shaped bustle panel and a velvet tie string, which is used to nip in the waist. The striped chevron pattern on the skirt gives the illusion of a little extra length in the skirt, this elongating the wearer’s body. Pleating to the bodice and skirt waist seam gives a little extra shaping and movement to the garment. The dress fastens with an original metal side zipper and is unlined.
Length: 59 1/2”
The dress is in very good condition, however there are some holes in the lace around the neckline as pictured and wear to the area just above the metal side zipper. There is fraying to the ends of the velvet tie.
