1980s Red Jersey Norma Kamali Multi Wear Dress Set

This spectacular eighties two piece set from Norma Kamali is not only super sexy but is like buying several outfits at once sine the pieces are great as stand alone's and the inner skirt can be worn at different lengths and can also be worn as a dress. I love the two together best, but it is certainly nice to be able to separate and wear them with with other items. Both pieces are made from her signature jersey that is so easy to wear and care for and drapes amazingly. The top dress is in a design that she still uses in variations today with a dramatic draped top, string shoulders and a fitted draped hip that you can wear high or low, over the skirt that comes with it or wear as a top or a mini dress on its own. The skirt is equally amazing - it is a long fitted sheath with a gathered cinching in at the waist that allows you to wear it on the hip or up and over the bust as a dress - this also lets you change the length of it or wear it on its own. It has a high center slit that is covered with a panel of draped fabric that falls to the hem. It is so rare to find these earlier examples of her work in a complete set like this and this particular one is fabulous.Excellent condition.

Unlined, light stretch matte jersey in red. There is elastic that runs through the waist and hips on the top/dress and the skirt has stretch. The very top of the waist of the inner piece has a slight stretch to it from being worn but it is only a teeny bit. Well constructed.
