1960s Pink Silk Chiffon Bessi Maxi Dress
This is an absolutely amazing Bessi dress and in the most spectacular color and print! You can easily see her days at Pucci strongly influencing the design. A bright and vivid pinky-red has pops of a true red, pinks and raspberry, all mixed together masterfully. I love the strong use of a contrasting border that defines and anchors the cut of the dress. Made of a mix of silks, the bodice is a silk jersey so is easy to wear and feels fabulous on. The skirt is a silk chiffon in a matching print over a solid red silk interior skirt. It is a nice slightly larger size and I did not pin it on the mannequin so you can see how it will fit on a smaller frame as well. This is truly a fabulous gown and in excellent condition!
