1970s Rare Neil Bieff Arturo Herrera Set
Amazing and very rare set done in collaboration between Neil Bieff and Artist Arturo Herrera. Bieff pieces were carried in Bendel's and Bergdorf's in the 1970s and where de rigour for the upper end patrons of Studio 54. The elaborately beaded designs and lightweight silks were perfect attention getters and still allowed the wearer to dance all night long. They were very expensive pieces in their day - ranging in the thousands. Pieces with the collaborative effort of the duo are rarer then the Bieff ones alone and the sets where often broken up so to find one complete is a treasure! Super, super set and in excellent condition!
Bust: 22" flat across the back from side to side
Waist: stretches 13-18" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Total length: 22" from mid-neck at the back to bottom hem
Waist: stretches 10-16" from side seam to side seam
Hips: 20" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Total length: 27" from waist seam to bottom hem
Both the top and skirt are lined in a second layer of the same silk crepe. The top slips over the head and has an elastic at the hem and cuffs. The elastic in the cuffs is just starting to loosen but is original and still Ok so I have left it as is. The skirt also has an elastic over a band of solid color silk crepe - this may be a replacement but I have seen other Bieff pieces with this same detail so I believe it is original as well.
