1960s Bessi Silk Printed Maxi Dress

This is an absolutely amazing Bessi dress and one of the best that I have had or seen! The print is spectacular - you can easily see her days at Pucci strongly influencing the design. The colors are sublime - a deep golden yellow, light olive, pops of purples and pinks all mixed together masterfully. I love the strong use of a contrasting border that defines and anchors the cut of the dress and the silk is a fantastic silk twill - Hermes scarf like in weight and feel. The bottom has a full panel added that is edged with a band of color that matches that edging on the rest of the skirt and the waist. The simple sleeveless bodice perfectly balances the skirt. This is truly a fabulous gown and in excellent condition! Item# DD875
