1980s Geoffrey Beene Deep Green Lace Set

I love the deep hued green that the lace on this lovely set ha sheen dyed to. It's such an unusual choice of color for lace and feels shockingly modern. It is actually a dress that has a nude silk bodice underneath and a tunic that is semi- see through that slips over that. It is really wonderfully constructed too! The inner dress has a stiffened inner waist band that makes it feel very couture when on. The skirt is cut slim and lean. The tunic is a simple lace shell that slips over the head and settles perfectly in place. Very chic and very beautiful in person! Excellent, appears unworn condition

The inner dress has a double layer of silk through the bodice and the skirt is lined in black silk organza. It closes with a back zipper and the inner stay closes with hook and eye. The tunic has snaps along one shoulder.
