1970s Koos Van Den Akker Print Dress

This late 1970s, early 1980s typifies the movement towards clothes that were easy to wear and had a sportswear meets runway feel to them. Made of a soft light cotton poly mix the dress feels fantastic on and is one of those slip on and go pieces that will work year round. It is full of amazing, but subtle Koos touches. Bits of contrasting print are worked through the design - the more closely you look at the piece the better it gets! I love the piped borders of a stiffened cotton dot ribbon - it adds just a hint of structure and a definite visual interest. The skirt is soft and flows out from the elastic waist. The bodice is cut long so it can be draped above an added belt to the waist can be worn lower on the hips for a more hippie feel. The collar buttons so you can change the feel by having them closed or leaving some (or all) open. Excellent condition. Item# DD923
