1960s Iconic Backless Geoffrey Beene

This piece to me completely sums up the Beene aesthetic - simple perfectly designed pieces that were highly functional and had unexpected details that made you catch your breathe. From the front this is a simple sheath of black - a superbly cut bodice is vertically seamed and flows into an A-line skirt with surprising amounts of fabric. Hidden side pockets are tucked in along the long side seams allowing the wearer to tuck in their hands. The back is a marvel, from the stark front you turn and get that sexy flash of back with a big cut out that dips low in the back and fastens at the nape of the neck. Simple but sensual, perfectly constructed and made of a good weight silk or silk blend so the line and shape remains when worn. A wonderful, statement piece in mint condition!
