Rare 1970s Yuki Halter Caftan Digital Print Jersey Dress
A loose and easy caftan cut dress is always an amazing vintage staple but to find one by the Yuki brand is a treat. It is such a rare label and I love his work. This piece shows his love of minimal seaming and has just two seams down each side and then that wonderful halter neck detail. The neckline brings the dress up and into a point and then wraps around the neck to leave the collarbones bare. I love that you can also "cheat" it and hook the halter off to the side and create a more one shoulder feel and it still works. From that defined neck it falls to the floor in a wide expanse of jersey - opening quite full and yet still falling wonderfully. The washable jersey is screened with an oversized digital and floral print that feel very modern and like wearing art on the body. It is shockingly sexy despite its full, full cut because of the way the fabric moves when you do. It is just gorgeous and a real find. Excellent condition
