1970s Vibrant Pink Silk Twill Adele Simpson Dress

This is a stunning silk twill dress with a depth and richness to the silk that you just don't get the full impact of till you see it in person. The exterior of the dress is a Hermes scarf weight, silk twill, in a brilliant vivid pink with stunning pops of color trailing over its surface. The colors run entirely over the entire piece from the simple, sleeveless, high collared bodice to the skirt that sweeps to the floor in a long and lean column of fabric. I love the deep V at the back with its collared detail edging its plunge. At the back there is a seam defining the waist and giving it shape but from the front it is a single panel of fabric that sweeps down and over the body. Very simple and chic. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a fine vibrant pink tissue silk and closes with a hand set, painted metal zipper.
