1970s Valentino Silver Grey Silk Top with Velvet Ties

The elaborate collar on this wonderful vintage Valentino top is my favorite detail. It has a very Baroque or Renaissance feel to it and showcases Valentino's love of history and decadence. It is set with a high ruffle and two velvet ties run though the neckline to tie at the front. It is made of a silver grey silk that has different sized vertical lines woven through the silk to add extra texture. The buttons run down the front under a panel of silk that hides them from sight and cuffed sleeves allow for a pouf of volume. Excellent condition.

Unlined and buttons at the front and cuffs. The cut is fairly generous so please check measurements as there was no size tag.
