Rare 1970s Annacat Floral Print Cotton Backless Halter Dress
Annacat is a label that is very hard to find and rare. When you do find one and it is as sexy and delicious as this one is you really feel like celebrating. In its day, Annacat pieces were often featured in editorials for Vogue UK and Harper's. The label was a heavy favorite of the fashion insiders at the time and worn by the "it girls" and rock stars of the day. This full length maxi dress is an amazing example of the best of what they were producing and why there were wait lists to get your hands on their dresses back then. The bodice is gathered along the center halter piece that ties up and around the back of the neck. Then, each side of the bodice extends into a long fabric tie that you wrap and tie around the waist or tie at the back and leave trailing down. This design leaves the back completely open and bare so it is insanely sexy. The waist nips in with the front halter extending into a wide panel right down the front - it almost acts like a huge pendant or neck piece. The skirt has yards and yards of fabric and it moves wonderfully as it is all cut on the bias. It is made of a cotton fabric that is wash and wear and I love the pretty floral pattern that covers the surface. It is a very rare and very fabulous vintage piece that still feels shockingly modern and sexy. Excellent condition.
Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper at the back waist. The front extends on either side and ties in the back and then the halter buttons at the back of the neck. Also if you love this one you may want to see this one as well - its the twin in cut but made of silk.
