1980s Fine Lace Bill Blass Dress & Jacket

An absolutely stunning set by Bill Blass is the epitome of refined lady like elegance. Both pieces are constructed from a very fine, almost weightless black lace, with the lace used for jacket feeling slightly starched so it has a touch of structure to it. The dress is a sublimely simple shift with the lace layered over two inner layers of feather like nude silk chiffon. It has the feel of a fine antique Chantilly and feels to be of the highest quality. The jacket has a beautiful ruffled collar and each sleeve ends in the same ruffle. I love how together they feel quite refined but once you remove the jacket it has a subtle sexuality to it. Excellent, seemingly unworn condition

The dress is fully lined in two layers of a fine, almost weightless nude silk chiffon and the jacket is unlined. The dress closes with a back zipper and the jacket has lace covered buttons down the front.
