1970s Silk Bessi Tunic & Pant Set

What an amazing Bessi set! Great Bessi pieces are right up there with Pucci and Leonard and this set is great! The blues and purple-blues used are just amazing and of course its all custom screened onto silk jersey and silk chiffon which holds the colors beautifully. They are as crisp and true now as when this was first made! The pants are just perfection - a slight flare cut with a side zipper and flat front. I love the double edged hem that gives the pant a bit of weight and a killer design element. The tunic is cut to skim the torso and flare out over the hip to pick up the shape of the [ant. The neck is high and those sleeves are fabulous! Billowing silk chiffon with a bit of contrasting border at each cuff. There is the matching silk chiffon scarf that can be worn turban style as shown or at the neck. Having three pieces makes if very versatile too! Excellent condition

Both pieces are unlined. The top closes with a fine metal zipper at the back and the pants close with a fine metal zipper at the side. The scarf has had rolled edges. Fabric is signed on all three pieces. Note the color is a little more sea blue then the brighter blue photoed.
