1970s Giorgio Sant'Angelo Colorful Bird Print Smock Dress

This Giorgio di Sant'Angelo dress is piece made in collaboration for Raymodes and these were all done prior to 1976 when he officially dropped the "di" from his own main label. It is an interesting little piece as it really showcases his early work but because it is not his own mainline the pricing is far lower then what it would be otherwise. He still would have designed and oversaw the production of this so you are not getting someone else's work - just a different version of his own. Even without any pedigree the dress is utterly fantastic. It is made of a hand washable fabric that has a gorgeous and vibrant bird design over its surface.The neckline is in his signature squared off cut with wide straps that curve up and around each shoulder. I love the lace and velvet ribbon detailing on the bright cotton and all the colors used. The body of the dress billows out quite full from under that right to the floor in a wide expanse of fabric. Big piped pockets sit on each hip and there is matching fabric belt that you can wear to add shape - though I love it equally  with the belt left off and worn full. It is cut to fit quite easily through the body. A great little summer piece and if it does not get snatched up quickly - might find its way into my own closet. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on to wear. It closes at the back with a metal and nylon zipper and each strap buttons at its base at the back with a different colored fabric covered button. The belt simply ties
