1960s Jean Varon Geometric Red Dress

I seriously love this red and black graphic Jean Varon dress! It is really one of the best prints I have had from him. Billowing, graphic sleeves are cuffed at the wrist with a wide panel of ruched and elastic banding. This same banding detail is used again at the waist with a darling little ruffled added underneath. The dramatic print really highlights the loose lines of the piece - you get the effect of softness and edgy at the same time. I love the high neck with the attached ties - it adds a bit of secretary naughty. The skirt is full and flirty. Truly a find and in excellent condition.

Sleeves: approx 28" long but pouf when worn
Bust: no defined side seams as the sleeves come out form the top of the waist band
