1960s Silk & Bead Malcolm Starr Shift Dress

This Malcolm Starr silk dress is absolutely stunning and it is this kind of dress that I think of and love when I think this label. The color has a touch more of a green undertone then how it presents in the photos and is quite pretty in person! It has an air of refinement and elegance to it through the combination of the silk and the thick panels of beading. The dress itself is a simple cut - an almost sculptural A-line with capped sleeves and a scooped neck. Beautiful detailing at the neck and on each sleeve. These are beaded and sequined in bands that circle each. Wonderful piece and in excellent condition!

Fully lined in a cream silky rayon and closes with a back painted metal zipper. Hidden pockets along front seam. The faintest of marks near the front hem in certain lights only - super size to see
