1970s Hanae Mori Silk Dress & Scarf w Purple & Graphic Print

I decided to re-post this Hanae Mori dress so it gets the fresh eyes on it that it deserves. It is very beautiful and striking with its stark color palette of black and white combined with a royal purple. The graphics that cover the surface suggest script and the bold mix of graphics and the strong color immediately catch the eye. To balance the color the dress is kept simple and sleek. It is constructed from a fine silk through the body and it is fully lined in a white silk so feels wonderful once on. The cut of the dress is a sleek column that is suspended from purple braided straps that curve over each shoulder. It is cut loose and easy through the body and just skims over the torso with just the slightest of curves to suggest the body underneath. A slit runs op one leg for a flash of skin. It also has a matching silk chiffon scarf with the same graduated purple print that covers the bodice of the dress. Excellent condition.
