1981 Michaele Vollbrach Silk Skirt & Top
Michaele Vollbrach pieces are so unusual and graphic - as time goes by they seem to get better and better. He loved silk and he loved to splash huge graphics across the fabric and then work that into a garment. I am actually a little sad at how this looks on the mannequin because it is really a fabulous set and I think it is better in person. The skirt falls to the floor and has a cinched waist and then quite a full shape without being too full. I love the waist to hem inverted pleat that runs down the front to give it more volume. The pockets are amazing and he purposely had the fabric custom screened to really show them off to the extreme. The top is full through the body and can be worn loose or ticked. The graphics and colors are amazing and I love the subtle dot pattern that runs through the silk! Excellent condition and in fact appears to have never been worn!
