1960s Fine Barocco Silk Chiffon Day 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. This is a stunning day dress that has a hint of what Valentino is doing now to it. A fine printed silk chiffon skims the body with pretty ruffle detailing. Hand covered silk buttons close the front and a satin sash is attached at the waist. Feminine and gorgeous! The construction is to couture level finish. Excellent condition.

Lined in fine tissue silk except for the sleeves. Closes with a series of hand covered silk buttons at the front, Hand set elastic at the cuffs. Hand finished inside. Exquisitely made!
