1980s Ruffle Sleeve Floral & Gold Hanae Mori Dress

What a gorgeous maxi dress from Hanae Mori that is very striking with those extravagant sleeve! The base color is a delicious shade of pale purple with soft pastel flowers worked into the print - so flattering on almost any skin tone. The floral print is screened onto a chiffon fabric that has tiny stripes of gold thread running through it in vertical lines. This gives the dress a subtle glimmer that is very pretty.! It is cut with an elastic through the waist - so it is very easy and comfortable to wear. I can imagine this with sandals for day and then a stacked heel at night. You could also belt it for extra shape through the waist as it is cut quite loose and easy. The bodice is cut simply with a unadorned scooped collar. It is those sleeves that create all the visual interest - three tiers of ruffles adorn each and create a dramatic silhouette. Excellent condition.

The dress is fully lined in a dyed to match lavender silk and slips on to wear with a tie at the back of the neck above a keyhole.
