1970s Hanae Mori Sunrise & Large Floral Print Silk Chiffon Halter Dress

I am such a huge Hanae Mori fan and this particular dress is absolutely wonderful. It still feels so fresh and modern even after all the years that have passed since it would have originally been made. The neck is gently scooped at the front with a little ties there and it softly blouses out to the waist. It is sleeveless with an angled cut that leads to the silk straps that wrap around the neck. The skirt flows to the floor in a perfect soft flowing column of silk. It flares out gently as it nears the hem and this allowed Hanae to fully showcase the print that she has wrapped around the lower skirt to its full advantage. The dress is made of the top printed layer of silk chiffon that you see and then inner layer is a nude silk chiffon. The skirt has an additional silk layer under that as well. Even with the layers the dress weighs almost nothing. Once the dress is slipped on, it simply floats around you.The outermost silk has been custom screened with one of her beautiful prints and it is a striking combination of neutral taupe and browns with vivid pops of blue and coral. The design is pure Hanae and the print is just extraordinary and beautiful depicting a sunrise over a beautiful floral backdrop. Excellent condition with one minor note below.

The bodice is interlined lined with a nude silk chiffon and layers of a nude silk chiffon and a pale blue silk line the skirt. It closes at the back with a series of hand covered snaps down the back and these also close the exterior skirt over the zipper that closes the inner lining. There are the lightest faintest little marks here and there on the skirt - maybe faint water marks? They are not seen unless laid out flat and when its on you would never notice. mentioned for accuracy. Hand finished throughout to demi-couture standards. Cut on the bias but waist is seamed
