1970s Silk Chiffon Hanae Mori Caftan

A museum quality, amazing 1970s silk chiffon iconic and instantly recognizable caftan by Hanae Mori. This is everything you look for in a Hanae piece. It has her spectacular custom designed floral print on feather light silk chiffon. The cut has that draped, goddess, flowing feel to it that collectors crave when they look for the best of Hanae's pieces. This is couture on the highest level with everything about the piece done to work with the rest. The inner sheath is made of layers of silk with the custom screened silk chiffon on the exterior. Over this a floating panel of chiffon sits attached across the shoulders with tiny flat knife pleats - so difficult to execute perfectly with this type of fabric. Huge "sleeves" are cut into the sides and go right to the floor. An amazing, once in a life-time find! Excellent, condition

Bust: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 16" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 55" from neck to bottom hem

The inner dress is fully lined in silk and then covered with the custom screened silk. The overlay is attached across the top of the bodice and shoulders. It closes with a back zipper and tiny snaps on the overlay over the zipper.
