1990s Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Black Silk Corset Top
This is a classic Vivienne Westwood piece that plays on the 18th century in its design execution. I doubt that many labels in the world can equal Vivienne's amazing corsets and their iconic status. It is highly sculptural in feel with its wonderful draped panels layered and placed over and inner stiffened board. This is cut so that the bust is pushed up to suggest the style of corsets from the 1700s. It is fully boned through the back and has ties that you can wrap around your body and cinch to add even more shape if you wish. I love that is has her signature asymmetrical cut so it feels instantly recognizable. Excellent condition
