1970s Yellow & Black Maurice Dress

This is an amazing printed 1970s dress by Maurice, who was a Pucci & Leonard contemporary in the seventies. Maurice used the same type of print work in his pieces, and this maxi dress has the added benefit of that perfect, sexy, easy to wear kimono inspired silhouette! The stark contrast of the black and yellow are fantastic and dramatic. The bodice appears to wrap and plunge with to the elbow, wide sleeves. The waist nips in and has a wide contrasting print banding. That same wrapped effect is given to the skirt and it flows to the floor in a cascade of print. The style is versatile too - style it for day with flats or paired with heels for evening events. It is made from a light wight fluid, poly jersey fabric that will work year-round and travels extraordinarily well. I love it. Excellent condition.

Shoulders: dropped and 19"
Sleeves: approx 16"
Bust: 16" flat across from side seam to side seam

Unlined and closes at the back with a zipper. The skirt wraps over itself at the front so you are fully covered when it is on but it is open to the waist under the wrapped part - like a true wrapped skirt would be. The fabric is signed throughout the design.
