1990s State of Claude Montana Net Inset Mini Dress

I love this little fitted mini dress by Claude Montana. It is so sexy and hot and the girl that can carry this off will go crazy when this one arrives. It is just perfect. It is made of that fabulous stretch nylon bandage jersey, but the lighter version bit the heavier knit kind, so it is whisper light on but clings to every curve. This was cutting edge fabric in the late 80s and early 90s - Tom Ford also used a version in some of his early Gucci collections. It holds you in where you need it but stretches so you can move where you need it as well. The top has a curved seam to emphasize the bust and the skirt is short and tight. In between is a black mesh that lets a little skin peek through. The skirt is set low slung on the hip and it still has its original belt. This is quintessential Montana - his girls wore pieces that heightened the sexuality aspect with figure hugging curves and mincing steps, all mixed with a tough edginess. A real collectible piece. Excellent condition
