1970s Valentino Four Piece Roma Print Full Length Halter Top Dress Set
This Valentino set is wonderful and even better once it is on an actual body. All four of the original pieces are present which is rare. This is early Valentino Boutique when they were still hand writing out the fabrics on the tag.
All of the pieces of the set are made out of the same fluid silk chiffon crepe that has a deep blue base with a Italian Roma tomato print. The pieces are all original. There is a cropped halter top, a long full maxi skirt, a sash and a huge shawl. The top is cut with a high neckline and a ruffled collar. The front is set on an angle that curves up towards the neck and leaves a hint of collar bone showing. It is slightly cropped in length and ends up sitting just at the waist with a ruffle detail that picks up the detail at the neck. This leaves the entire top portion of the back bare. This gorgeous little top goes with the long maxi length skirt that is incredibly full. It widens out to almost a full circle skirt when laid out flat with yards and yards of fabric there. A double ruffle circles the bottom hem and ties in with the ruffles on the halter top. When the top and skirt are worn together it gives the effect of a dress except for that sexy peek of skin at the waist. You can wrap the long sash around the waist or use as a head scarf. The shawl can be wrapped and styled around you any way you wish. The shawl is also finished with a ruffle around all its edges to tie everything together perfectly. The set is gorgeous and far better on an actual body them my dress form. This is Valentino at his best during this time period. Excellent condition
The skirt and halter top are fully lined in a black silk chiffon and the sash and shawl are unlined. The halter closes with a painted metal at the back and the skirt also zips to close at the waist. Hand finished throughout. Tagged a vintage Valentino 6Halter Top
