circa 1996 Tom Ford for Gucci Backless Knit Top

This is the perfect little black sweater that you will reach for over and over whenever you want to drop jaws and need something over-the-top sexy. It is made from a tightly woven knit that has a touch of elastic in it giving it that"bandage" feel and some support since you cannot wear anything under it. From the front it seems demure - a high neck and simple cut. But as soon as you turn around it is an entirely different story. The entire back is bare with a metal Gucci engraved bar at the back of the beck and two skinny straps running across the back. It leave the entire back bare. It is a perfect balance of sexy and dramatic - just what Ford excelled at. Excellent condition.
