1970s Leonard Bell Sleeve Silk Print Dress

A wonderful and vibrant dress by Leonard. Leonard Paris is a label that was a contemporary of Pucci and very sought after. This one is a delicious combination of vivid tropical colors on an inky black backdrop. It is cut to skim over the body and fall softly over the hips where it widens out. This widening out at the hem mimics the same effect on each sleeve - the fall just below the elbow and are remarkably wide by the time the reach the cuffs! I love the soft draped neckline and the contrasting panel of design that finishes the cuffs and hem. It is super easy to wear and to travel with and the cut is very flattering. The dress is a strong statement piece and still so very chic now. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Unlined and closes with a hand set, back metal zipper. Light padding in each shoulder
