Chic Little 1970s Leonard Ocean Blues Printed Silk Jersey Untra Mini Dress or Tunic

The Leonard Paris label began as a textile firm in 1954 and for the first four years of its existence it only produced fabric. In 1958 they started making garments but it was not until about 1970 when they started using a printed silk jersey for the majority of their collections that the label really took off. They are often compared to Pucci and during the seventies the two labels battled it out to be the label of choice for the jet set. This is a particularly fabulous dress from the label

I love whenever I get a fabulous Leonard dress into the shop. They are so chic and easy to wear and travel with. This one is a beauty that is made out of one of their signature silk jersey fabrics. This fabric choice is what gives these dresses their perfect drape and fit. Each of their dresses were made of custom designed fabrics and prints. The colour combination on this one is stunning. It combines a variety of ocean blues ranging from pale turquoises to deep sea blues. These make up a gorgeous swirling print that runs over the entire dress. The dress is meant to skim over you and widens out a bit as it reaches the hem. The sleeve are long  and detailed with a contrasting border at each cuff. The neckline is high at the front and also finished with a contrasting border for detail. That same border is used at the end of the hem too. It has this fabulous slightly oversized, boxy shape that is easy to wear. You just throw it on over anything and walk out. It great as a piece on its ow or as a super glamorous beach piece while traveling. It is short so can play double duty as both a tunic or a micro mini if you dare. It is a real little beauty. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a back, hand set metal and nylon zipper. The fabric is a silk jersey and does have some stretch. A small size frame can wear it more oversized
