1980s Valentino With Bejeweled Snake Belt

Beautiful and vibrant green Valentino has an unusual but fabulous cut. The top is almost cape like in its fullness and drapes beautifully over the pencil cut skirt. The opening fr the arm are cut along the seam and this in itself creates an interesting drape to the top. To keep it feminine and very Valentino a bejewled belt cinches in the waist. The belt is a twisted pewter toned snake that is completely covered with inset green rhinestones! Love it! Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a fine silk and closes at the side with a combination of a zipper and fabric covered snaps. The belt snaps to close with large hidden fabric covered snaps. At some point one set of the snaps were moved but this of course does not show when on. There is some very fine light snagging to the fabric that is only noticeable on close inspection. This is inherent to this fabric as it ages.Priced accordingly
