c.1975 Vicky Tiel Velvet Detailed Silk Chiffon Set
I know that Vicky Tiel is known fro that fitted ruched wiggle dress silhouette, but her design repertoire is far greater then that one look. Personally I think this one is a knock out and really shows her strong play with fabric and lines. I have dated it to the mid seventies - you can see a photo of a very pregnant Vicky with Woody Allen in a dress with a similar fabric. It looks like a maxi dress but it actually two pieces. The skirt is a full length A-line with the top layer of silk cut on the bias so it really has a lovely flow and drape to it. The top is spectacular with a nod to the turn of the century in its sleeves that are fitted below the elbow and voluminous above that with padding in the shoulder to keep that effect. It zips at the front and has a sexy plunge and semi-transparent feel. Very chic but sexy. Excellent, appears unworn condition.
The top is lined through the bodice with a chocolate silk chiffon and it closes at the front with a zipper. The buttons on the front and cuffs are decorative only. The shoulders have light padding. Each sleeve is lined in silk below the elbow and closes with a painted metal zipper. The skirt is fully lined in silk and closes with a side painted metal zipper.
