1980s Red & Pink Gianfranco Ferre Silk Dress

A dreamy romantic cut combined with an almost neon orange and hot pink make for an ultra feminine and high end dress! This is Ferre at his best. The inner dress is actually a stretch bandage dress so clings to every curve like a glove. A stretch silk satin band binds the waist and then pink silk chiffon panels form a goddess feel bodice that is suspended from the shoulders by pretty velvet buttons. Panels of that same pink chiffon attach under the waist band in pretty panels at the front and back - by only placing them on the front and back he cleverly allows the uber fitted bandage skirt underneath to be glimpsed - a sort of subverted sexuality. The jacket is a classic cropped box cut and uses that same silk satin as its base and then those are all attached to each other by panels of the pink chiffon. It is honestly just wonderful and even better in person! Ferre is a designer that is sometimes overlooked but he really did amazing work! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

The dress is unlined and closes with a back painted nylon zipper. The fabric has stretch and is meant o fit very tightly. It has elastic along the inner bodice top edge. Each shoulder has a velvet button and loop to close. The jacket is fully lined in pink silk chiffon and has no closures. Both pieces are tagged as a 40. Note that there is a smudge on the side of the inner skirt under the panel. Priced accordingly
