1970s Sant' Angelo Low Back Bead Gown

This is an amazing and chic black maxi dress by Giorgio Sant'Angelo in a stunning black jersey. The fabric has a touch of a nubby texture to it that gives it a little bit if extra visual interest. It is cut on the bias so drapes perfectly when on. It has a strong reference to the 1930s but with little touches that make it oh so seventies! I love the high necked front and almost stark and severe quality to it. Then when you turn around its all high glamour and sex appeal. The back dips low and asymmetrically and a panel of fabric is swept tot eh side with a spray of bead work and then falls, draping to the floor. The sleeves are long and lean and with a slight hint of pouf about the wrist. I love the strong beaded shoulders -for some reason I think Bianca Jagger every time I look at this and imagine some fabulous girl pairing a beaded cloche or turban with this gown! Unbelievable! Excellent, unworn condition
