1960s Baroco Silk Demi-Couture Dress

Rocco Barocco is a famous Italian designer that is still designing today under the RoccoBarocco label. That is his second line however, with his first foray into fashion executed under the more simple Barocco label of which this dress is from. This label only existed from 1968 to 1974 and pieces were extremely high end and well made, demi-couture RTW really! This is a stunning day dress that has a hint of what Valentino is doing now. A fine ribbon weave silk has stripes and dots woven into the fabric. The cut is very chic and simple and I love the silk satin shoulder inset. The front pockets are decorative but add a gorgeous little detail. The neck has two long attached silk satin ties that I have styled wrapped around the neck. You can also do a huge bow or just tie once and let them hang. Love the rhinestone topped buttons! Feminine and gorgeous! Excellent, appears to have never been worn condition!

Rhinestone set buttons are decorative - it actually closes with fabric covered hidden snaps down the front and at each cuff. A silk satin tie is attached at the neck. Fully lined in silk except for the sleeves. The construction is to couture level finish.
