1980s Vollbracht Silk & Sequin Caftan Set

Coty award winner, Michaele Vollbracht, designed under his own name for just 6 short years making his designs rare and collectible things. He is renowned for his customs prints on rightly hued silks and his pieces are a pleasure both the wear and to look at - they really are wearable art! This set is amazing, so easy to wear and a real statement piece! The top is a poncho like, caped swatch of silk. It is all one piece with a neckline cut out and piped and the natural drape allows the sides to hang lower then the middle when on. I love this draped, caftan look - it is wonderfully fluid and sexy. The skirt wraps closes and is a single spectacular piece of silk that is finished and piped at its edges. The print is amazing. It would be a customs painted print that was then screened to create this one of a kind fabric. On each of those black brushstrokes, glossy black sequins have been hand applied for just a touch of glitz. It's in immaculate condition and a wonderful, highly wearable and highly collectible set!
