1960s I. Magnin Silk Twill and Silk Chiffon Caped Dress

This beautiful dress only has its I. Magnin label but I feel strongly that this is a designer piece. I feel like I have seen it before and one day I am I will stumble upon a photo and the lucky girl that owns it will get an email confirming its true identity! The base of the dress is made of a high quality silk twill in a beautiful soft pastel striped pattern. Over the top is a floating silk chiffon capelet with the same pattern. This is attached at the top of the shoulders and floats down over the bodice. It dips down to a low V at the back. The dress under it is a simple sheath that falls to the floor in a column of silk. The color is a beautiful mix of blues, greens and pinks on a white silk backdrop and all the lines of the design line up along the seams. Wonderfully made. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in white silk with a nude silk chiffon on the very upper portion of the shoulder area of the inner dress. Some very tiny foxing marks here and there but nothing that detracts. Closes with a back painted metal zipper.
