1960s Rudi Gernreich Silk Shift Dress

This little silk shift dress was designed by Rudi Gernreich and is very representative of the 60s in its cut. It is that classic little above the knee shift dress that you can wear loose with an almost bubble shape to it through the midriff or cinch it in with the original fabric belt. The silk is a very high grade and the exterior that perfect shade of olive green. The interior is also silk and the color used there is a bright turquoise with is a fabulous contrast to the olive and like a lovely little secret only the wearer knows about. Very simple but very chic. Excellent condition.

Lined in turquoise silk and closes with a back metal and nylon zipper.
