1960s Chic Striped Geoffrey Beene Day Dress

This little Beene dress is a classic. I love it's proper little lines and combined with Beene's fabulous tailoring its a real stand out. Made of a striped grey wool that at first glance appears to be very simply cut but upon closer inspection you realize that all the shape through the body is created by cleverly placed, curved vertical seaming. Little pockets are hidden along the seam and it zips at the front with a concealed zipper that runs up that front middle seam. The collars and cuffs are a matte cream silk satin and give wonderful contrast. A big bow sits at the neck and the stark black of it offers the perfect contrast to the other elements. Fabulous day pieces are sometimes the hardest to find when you look to vintage but this one is wonderful! Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a black silky rayon and closes with a hidden set zipper at the front neck. Two front pockets and a decorative button on each cuff. The bow at the neck snaps into place can can be removed altogether with the snaps hidden under the collar when removed.
