1970s Wrap Color Block Giorgio Sant 'Angelo Dress
I have had this dress before and it is one of my favorite pieces from Sant 'Angelo so I was thrilled to have it again.My last was an unlabeled version but this one has its proper label and looks as new as the day it was made. It is a wrap dress and in typical Sant 'Angelo style, uses bright primary colors to make a statement. He is known for his prints and color and here he turns the entire dress into one dramatic statement. It wraps around itself and ties at the waist creating a low front and even more plunging back. One half of the bodice is blue, the other purple and a wide panel of red defines the waist. The green skirt anchors it all and is wonderfully full when you twirl. The chiffon crepe used gives it a great drape and really a "dancer" feel. Really exceptional. Excellent, appears unworn condition.
The skirt does not wrap, rather you step into it and then wrap the waist ties to secure in place. The top is unlined and the waist panel and skirt are a double layer of the same exterior fabrics. The long ties are attached.
