1970s Rare Chloe Printed Silk Velvet Collar Smock Dress

This amazing 1970s Chloe may be from Karl Lagerfeld time with the label as it has that feel but I could not verify that - which is a bonus for the girl that buys it as the price would be far more if I could have. Regardless, it is a stunning dress that works much, much better on a real girl then it does on the mannequin. The excessive volume through the body of the dress transforms on a body to movement. The drama of the wide cut sleeves does not translate in the photos - they need to be on a body and moving so that the richness of the silk really shows off. The color of the silk is absolutely gorgeous - it is a soft blush pink - a touch richer in hue in person then how it photoed. This nude pink contrasts against the black print and the rich velvet collar beautifully. The silk is very fine and of Hermes scarf weight so feels like you are wearing a wisp of air. It is a very simple dress that flows from the shoulder and gently widens as it nears the hem. The sleeves are cut wide and full. The collar is made of velvet and curves up and around the neck. From there is flows into an upper shoulder that also curves into place. The silk is gathered into this shoulder detail with softly gathered pleats. Excellent condition
