1970s Valentino Strapless Linen Dress

A stunning late 1970s Valentino dress made of his signature linen fabric that has been custom screened with huge blooms! Every detail about this dress is fabulous! The strapless bodice is very fitted and the inner bodice has been pin-tucked all the way around. Onto this is that floral fabric and is covers the back and then ties at the front making a very pretty detail! The skirt has this same spirit of layering - the inner skirt is the solid black linen over which a shorter skirt of that fabulous floral linen is placed. The effect is wonderful and the dress has that amazing Italian summer feel! I love it! Excellent condition
