1960s Metallic Coral and Gold Maxi Dress

This stunning dress is almost certainly an unlabelled Malcolm Starr. My client is sure that it had that label at one time and I have a very similar one that is shorter in my archives so am quite confident that it is indeed a Starr. The fabric is a fabulous metallic thread with an underlying pretty pattern under the gold thread that is woven through the fabric! The color is amazing - it is a stunning combination of corals  with little pops of other colors in and under the gold. The bodice skims over the torso with darling little capped sleeves and the skirt cascades to the floor in a widening swath of fabric. The silk used is lightweight and the fabric really holds the shape of the skirt beautifully. I love the flat gold braiding that finishes the neckline, waist and each sleeve. Really a lovely piece! Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a pale yellow taupe tissue silk and closes with a painted back metal zipper.
