1960s Silk Chiffon Purple Galanos Dress

When you find a really really great silk chiffon vintage dress it takes your breathe away and this is one of those pieces. It is like wearing air and magic. Constructed form layers of a deep purple silk chiffon the details and craftsmanship that went into constructing this dress is exceptional. The way the chiffon is stitched into little rounded pleats all along the top to create a Elizabethan feeling ruffle detail - I love! In a season where the shape of pieces is exaggerated and full this feels especially modern and relevant. Two scarves of matching silk are with it and you can use these to style the dress in many ways! You can leave it loose and easy or cinch it for shape. Really exceptional. Excellent condition.
