1990s Sophie Sitbon Minimalist Deep Blue Front Cut Out Bralette Dress

Sophie Sitbon once described her signature look as being seductive, rather then sexy. She said she wanted to attract on different levels with her clothing and prefer that they be viewed as being provocative not blatant. She produced her first collection in 1985 with the aim to produce clothing that had the feel and look of a couture piece within ready to wear price points. 

This dress exemplifies her point of view with her clothing. It is definitely sensual and falls perfectly in line with the body conscious look of the nineties. The dress is cut with a fitted and tailored silhouette. It is meant to hug every curve and follow the body. All of the seaming is set vertically to add to the feeling of length that it creates for the girl wearing it. It has a dramatic neckline with built in bra cups that are set within a series of curved, open cut outs. Each open cut out is attached down the center of the dress by two little flat strips of piped fabric. The waist nips in and all the front seaming extends down from the seams that curve around the bra cups. A slim cut skirt skims over the hips from there with a back vent to allow for walking. It is amazing. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a blue silk and closes at the back with a hidden set zipper. Tagged a 38 and very well made.
