1970s Adolfo One Shoulder Top & Skirt

A really spectacular set by Adolfo. This is a once in a lifetime, glorious piece constructed of black silk chiffon that has an amazing large crossed pattern worked through the silk in a fluid, black lame look threading. It is almost weightless and yet constructed so that it drapes on the body perfectly. The skirt is to the floor and has yards and yards of fabric in it. Two layers of chiffon are under the top layer s it gives it a very floating effect when you move. At the waist is a long silk satin tie that ends in eight inch long silk cord tassels! This really gives an added sense of richness and luxury to the piece. The top is stunning - it has one shoulder, leaving the other bare and the bodice is hand draped and gathered. Once tucked in it looks like one single piece but because it is two you could potentially break it up and wear the pieces separate as well! Museum quality.

Bust: to 16.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 23" from top of the shoulder to hem

The skirt is fully lined in two layers of black silk chiffon. The top has a fully opening painted metal zipper on one side and is lined in a layer of black silk chiffon. The skirt has a side zipper with a snap and† flat hook & eye at the waist. The silk satin sash is attached at one side of the skirt end ends in 8" silk cord tassels. Hand finished.
