1970s Rare Early Norma Kamali Jumpsuit

This is a very very rare and very early Norma Kamali piece. It really should be in a museum as it is from one of her very early collections and is most likely a predecessor to her later parachute jumpsuits and pieces! It is cut so low at the front and with such a deep plunge that the girl who gets this should be pretty brave or layer it over a stretch strapless piece! The sleeves are cut from the waist out so are wide and dramatic. The fabric is a light white cotton mix that has a nice crispness to it while remaining soft. Pleas sit just under the waist and the hips have a touch of flare to them. Each ankle gets super skinny and has wide fabric ties that you wrap around the ankles. It is simplicity itself and yet extremely dramatic when on. You will not see this versions of her label often and to find such and extraordinary design as well is marvelous! Excellent condition and a very rare, early, show stopping piece!
