1970s John Kloss Coral Nylon Gown

Glorious nylon gown by the great John Kloss who was an Ossie Clark contemporary and did mainly lingerie pieces with a few draped goddess jersey gowns thrown in for good measure. I love his work. Its simple yet always with a drop dead sexy twist and he deliberately chose good weight and quality nylons that held the color well and would drape exactly as he wished. This gown is a startling tangerine coral and is that drop dead sexy without really revealing much more then decolletage and shoulders. The skirting has yards and yards of fabric and cascades out from an elastic empire waist. The bust and shoulders are tiny scoops of fabric and are meant to cover and tantalize. Its semi sheer but could be worn out with nude undergarments or clever styling. Truly a beauty and in fantastic condition!
