1970s Giorgio di Sant'Angelo Silk Outfit
Rare and fabulous hippie chic 1970s silk chiffon set that is absolutely beautiful and a fantastic example of Giorgio di Sant'Angelo's work and aesthetic. He first hit the fashion map when Diana Vreeland asked him to design clothing for a desert location shoot that starred Verushka in 1968. This shoot is legendary and his clothing was instantly sought out by all the most fashionable women on the planet! In 1976 he dropped the "di" from his name meaning that this is a pre-1976 piece, making it even more collectible! His pieces were sexy, bold and had a hippie flair to them that few other designers could match at the time. This set is quintessentially chic and has that "Stevie Nicks" feel to it. The skirt falls in points and moves fantastically - its entirely made of a layer over a layer of feather light screened silk chiffon. The top wraps and sits just at the waist line of the skirt. It captures that same floating feeling with layers chiffon sleeves. Blue suede patches adorn each shoulder and highlight the waist. Museum quality condition and exceptional. It is romantic, sexy and fabulous!
The top is lined through the body with white silk chiffon and the sleeves are left unlined. It wraps and ties to close. The skirt has a lining made of a double layer of the same fabric that ends just above the knee with the top layer over that. It close with zipper and hidden hook & eye on the waistband.
