1973 Dramatic Pleat Zandra Rhodes Set

What a dramatic set this is. It was most likely originally meant as a lingerie type piece but boy could it hit the town now! It's two pieces - a dress and that wild signature pleated over jacket that goes right to the floor. I have seen this done in a pattern and in solid black but never in this eye-catching romantic peachy pink. Obviously Zandra is renowned for her use of design and pattern, but this piece really allows her absolute genius for design shine through on its own. The cut of the jacket is astounding - tight knife pleats on bias cut fabric are sculpted to form that incredible back and draped shoulder. An extravagant ruffle runs down the front and it ties just under that ruffle so the line is not broken. The under dress is a sheath of pale silk with a ruffle piece at the top and bottom. Both pieces are n incredible condition - I have pieces from an estate that came form a mad collector and most were never worn - this appears not to have been! Delicious and versatile piece!
