c.1990 Blue Net Silk Giorgio Di Sant Angelo Dress
One of the most coveted of all the Sant Angelo designs, these little stretch mesh overlay dresses are prized and hunted down by their fans! They are the ultimate fitted and sexy dress with stretch jersey under the top mesh. It was his signature to play with the tones of the inner and outer layers so that once on the dress takes on a pretty mix of the two hues. In this case the inner lining is a bright cobalt blue and the exterior a deeper blue. It is cut in panels and plunges at the front and back. You can make the skirt as high up the thigh as you dare. I love the little hip swag on this one that runs all the way down and around the skirt. I have not seen this particular detailing on one of his dresses before and it gives it a saucy, exotic flare. Very rare and special. Excellent condition.
A more covered version of this dress was photoed for Vogue Australia on Lana Ogilvie in 1990 by Anthony Gordon
Lined in a stretch blue jersey. Almost impossible to measure as it literally will stretch to fit up and down and will fit as small as a size 0. In 1990 the one pictured on Lana retailed for $1890 - add inflation and you can see the high cost of these!
