1970s Print Draped Silk Pauline Trigere Dress Set

This amazing Pauline Trigere set, done in one of her signature floral prints, is absolutely spectacular. It is one of my favorite pieces that I have had by her so far and that is saying a lot. Done in a brilliant green mixed with pinks and purples on a light scarf weight silk that holds the color amazingly well. This fabric choice works perfectly with the draped and caftan feel the set has and when on weighs ounces so is insanely comfortable to wear. The top is cut deceptively simple but is pure genius - it is two panels of fabric back to back so has no true side seams. The waist is gathered in an elastic front and back and hooks on each side. This creates that wonderful volume and an almost kimono-esque cut that is stunning on. This tops a beautifully cut, long, lean silk skirt. It looks like nothing special off a body but once on - wow. Then the original tie belt cinches in the waist to give it some shape. Amazing concept and a beautiful couture level piece. Excellent, appears unworn condition

The top is unlined and slips on and hooks at either side of the elastic waist. It has a button above the keyhole opening at the back neck. The skirt is lined in a green silk chiffon and closes with a flat hook at the side waist with an elastic through the waist. Has original tie belt in matching fabric
