1970s Wrapped Jersey Geoffrey Beene

This set, from the same estate, is also a rare and wonderful Beene that is in mint condition and I doubt was even worn. It is constructed from miles and miles of a slinky silk mix jersey that has a fantastic weight to it and drapes beautifully. The top is a simple Tee that has seaming along the top of the arms and then under and down the side only. This creates a wonderful minimalist effect and it's insanely sexy. The skirt is amazing. Super model length it is cut on the bias and the amount of fabric in it are astounding. Its is seamed to mid hip, so you step into it and then a long long tie wraps around, loops through and cinches. I love the way he constructed the waistline on this one with a wider panel and then soft pleating that comes out form each side. This is just insanely fabulous! And the small unseen when worn detail that makes this? Both the top and skirt has a tiny label hand sewn in that say front. Just a courtesy for the fabulous girl that wears it of course. One can picture Beene throwing his hands up and saying - no no you have it on backwards ...and then having the labels sewn in so his masterpiece is worn properly! Mint and fabulous!
