1970s Hand Painted & Metallic Silk Top

Wonderful and unique top that I feel must have had a label at some point as it is so striking and unusual - perhaps Kenzo or of that ilk? Made of a red silk chiffon it has immense billowing sleeves that are each caught up tight at the cuff and are cut in a full circle above. The body of the top is cut straight and is hand painted in a wild clash of colors. Metallic ribbon edges the sides, sits on each sleeve and are used to create the ties at the front. Those ties go almost to the waist so if you wear a nude underpinning you will create the illusion of being completely bare underneath! Fabulous! Excellent condition.

Shoulders: dropped and 18"
Bust: 17.5" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 17.5" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Sleeves: 23"
Length: 24" from neck to bottom hem

Unlined and slips over the head with front ties down the front. Each cuff closes with a rhinestone encrusted dome plastic button.

Modern Sizing equivalent: SML Will drape more on a smaller frame
