1970s Victoria Royal Pale Grey Jersey Dress w Jeweled Ring Collar
This dress has a bit of a Loris Azzaro Feel to it with that wonderful jewelry collar. At first glance you would almost think that it was one of his his signature pieces. It has that same looped keyhole type neckline with heavy embellishment to it like some of his most famous dresses did. This slightly simpler version is made from a fluid silver-grey jersey that drapes fantastically. The color perfectly off-sets the detailing at the neck. It is gathered up and around the bodice with the gathers there converging into the center keyhole. The upper shoulders and back are left bare. The skirt cascade from just below the bust line to flow to the floor, gently widening out as it nears the hem. The neckline is of course, the center piece of the dress. It curves up and around the neck and the straps are completely encrusted with densely set faux pearls, rhinestones and beads. Presents as excellent condition with a small note to review below
Fully lined in a matching grey silky rayon and closes at the back with a painted metal and nylon zipper. There is some light scuffing/grubbiness along the hem and on the inner neckline and the occasional very faint mark on the jersey. A couple of beads missing near the hook and eye of the halter that you can see in the label photo. Nothing that detracts when on but present when laid out flat and inspected.
