1980s Bob Mackie Black Chiffon & Gold Detailed Feather Trimmed Lingerie Set

This is an incredibly extravagant set by Bob Mackie for a collaboration he did with the Blanche lingerie brand during the late seventies - early eighties time period. It still has all of its original tags attached and is in perfect condition. Rarely do I bring in lingerie pieces but this one was so fabulous that I could not resist it. The inner gown is made of a slinky gold lurex fabric that has little gold dots printed over the fabric. The neckline is dipped very low at the front and the netting there is detailed with a pattern done in a gold metallic thread. The back dips into another low V and the entire neck line has a caped effect made from a black semi-transparent chiffon. Over this is the outer robe that is made of that same black chiffon. This gives the robe a sexy, transparent effect. The outer robe is absolutely fantastic. The cuffs and neckline have a huge and dramatic feather finish to them. Each sleeve has a wide cut with more of that gold embroidered thread design set above each feather cuff. I love how the sleeves are set on an angle. Around the neck are more of the feathers and it has a decadent Old Hollywood feel. This is everything you want from a Bob Mackie. It is over the top, glamours and extravagant. You could probably get away with wearing either piece out for evening pieces which just adds to the fabulousness of the set. All original tags attached and unworn. Excellent condition.

Both pieces slip on. The robe has ties at the front. Tagged a P (small) and the set has all its original tags. Has never been worn
