1960s Metallic & Print Malcolm Starr Maxi Dress

How absolutely gorgeous is this dress? I love the richness of the jewel tones mixed with the gold threading and gold braid detailing at the neckline It is made of a light weight lame silk and has a beautiful print from head to toe - this, combined with the gold thread that is worked solidly through the fabric really creates a nice, rich hippie chic, exotic feel. The gold thread in woven through the fabric with a secondary paisley print to parts creating denser areas of gold that really works against the bright pops of color and floral design underneath. I love the gold braid detail. The skirt is full but not overly and swoops to the ground in a column of gold tinted silk. It is a beautiful, dramatic piece whose simple lines offset the drama of the fabric perfectly. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a light cafe au lait silk and closes with a back painted metal zipper.
