1970s Leonard Paris Green Floral Print Silk Jersey Halter Dress

This is a very fabulous and quite a sexy dress by the Leonard Paris label. It is made from his signature silk jersey fabric and this choice of fabric gave these long maxi length dresses the perfect drape and fit. It is that perfect balance of being easy to wear and still staying insanely sexy but without being overtly so. Each of his designs were made from custom designed fabrics and during this time period in particular, they were all the most gorgeous color palettes, like this one with its mix of bright flowers on that stunning green backdrop. I love the crossed over triangle halter cut through bodice and the back that is left almost bare. The barely-there top perfectly balances the full length maxi skirt that flows to the floor in a swoop of bias cut silk jersey. There is a good amount of fabric through the skirt which allows for more of that pretty design to be seen whenever you move. The neck sinks into a V and the straps that curve around each shoulder and down the back are made from the same silk that has been braided. Signature contrasting borders define the neckline, under the bust and all the way around the hem. This dress is a real little beauty. Excellent condition with a minor note to review below.

Unlined and closes with a low back back, hand set metal and nylon zipper. The fabric is a silk jersey and does have some stretch - the measurements given are the comfortable stretch when laying out flat. The fabric is signed throughout. There are some teeny marks on the front nearer to the bottom but nothing that detracts
