1990s Valentino Silk Lingerie Inspired Dress

In the nineties Valentino did a few seasons where he focused heavily on a definitive lingerie look - adding elements that took boudoir wear out into evening wear. This little shift is a beautiful example of that. Made of a beautiful moire silk taffeta in a deep olive the simple shaped dress is feminine and flattering. The olive is a wonderful alternative to black. Black dotted lace is set as inset on either side of the leg and this adds both a romantic and sexy touch. It is very well made and the inside is beautifully finished. Flat bows sit at the base of each strap and this again emphasizes its lingerie feel. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Fully lined in an olive silk and closes with a side, hidden set zipper.
