1970s Bias Cut Jean Muir Jersey Halter Dress

Unusual Jean Muir in that you normally see her day pieces. This one is absolutely evening and has a strong nod to the great designers that preceded Muir with its 1930s feel and a nod to those great bias cut pieces of the past. It is very Grecian goddess and very sexy. The skirt widens as it swoops to the floor and is fluid and drapes amazing on. The use of her signature jersey sees to that! The bodice is just gorgeous with a twisted knot and a plunge back. I love how the fabric knot sits just under the collarbones and how you can wear the shoulders twisted or draped as I have shown. The back is left low and bare. Really an exceptional piece and deceptively simple off the hanger and devastatingly sexy on a real girl. Excellent condition
