Amazing 1980s Flora Kung Pale Silver Satin Jumpsuit w Plunge Neckline & Tie Waist
Flora Kung was on of THE designers to wear in the eighties for the MTV generation. In an interview with the Chicago Tribune in 1985 she said 'I think it's my .... particular sense of daring and cleanness that appeals to the younger group... and the clothes continue to be spontaneous because I personally design everything.' She loved silks and satins for the way they draped on the body. This is a fabulous jumpsuit by her in a muted silver. No matter how much you like it on the dress form in the photos it is only going to truly come to life on an actual body where the fabric can drape and move with you. The shoulders are strong and the sleeves cut to slim down as they near the wrists. The top is cut with the loose and full volume that was the hallmark of the eighties. It has soft drapes coming out from the shoulders and falls in a deep plunge at the front. There is a snap that you can use to close the plunge a bit more or you can leave that open and wear it very open. I photoed most of these with it open but there is one shot with it snapped so you can see. It cinches in at the waist and has a sash in a matching fabric that you can tie around you to create more shape. The legs are cut in a long peg and depending on your height might fall slightly cropped on you. The fabric is the perfect soft silver and the satin choice makes it as light as a feature and easy to wear. Excellent condition
