1970s Jean Varon Printed Maxi Dress

Jean Varon did a series of dresses in a slinky nylon jersey. This fabric works brilliantly with his love of pattern and color. It holds the color perfectly and they stand the test of time staying true and crisp. Here he has used a palette of purples and reds in long, lean making rows of print. The dress has a high collar and sleek bodice. The sleeves are also cut long and lean and the skirt cascade to the floor. I love the banding worked into the pattern that defines the hem and waist area. These clever placements of the print make a girl look super model tall and curved at the same time! The nylon jersey is slinky and sensual to the touch and extremely light and easy to wear. It also travels fabulously. Excellent condition
