1970s Mollie Parnis Boutique Plaid Coral Blue & Green Print Chiffon Dress
I have had a version of this dress before that was a bit more elaborate then this one but I actually this simplified one with its sleek lines that allow the print it really stand out. This is a fabulous 1970s Mollie Parnis dress and I think that it is very hard not to love such a strong statement piece. That bold print gives it such drama and yet, it still has a soft and sexy element to it. The chiffon that it is constructed from has been custom screened with a fantastic bold plaid design. The pattern is a combination of deep corals and reds with pops of different colored stripes running through including a bright green and a royal blue. The bodice has a plunge front and this same deep V is done at the back as well. Under this the waist is defined by a wide band of gathered fabric. From there the skirt flows to the ground from pleats that circle all the way around the waist. The then softly open so that the skirt has a touch of volume. This also gives the skirt lots of movement when you move. The contrast between the colors and the refined cut is fabulous. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a deep raspberry silk crepe and closes at the back with a painted metal zipper.
