1970s Rare and Chic Hermes Black Linen Wrap Dress

An amazing, sculptural piece from the house of Hermes in the most amazing starched black linen! The choice of fabric gives it an instant sense of luxury and chicness. The bodice is dipped in a V at the front and it wraps to close. The front wraps over itself, securing with a series of buttons hidden inside and then the other, exterior side and shoulder are detailed with a tightly spaced series of gold embossed Hermes buttons. The skirt flares out in an A-line to a chic midi length. I love the sculptural line of it and the fabric choice - it feels very jet set with that rich luxurious feel that house always seems to infuse into its goods. Hidden halfway under that front wrap just below where the gold buttons end is a large pocket that sits on the hip. Really a wonderful and chic dress. Excellent, appears to never have been worn condition.

Unlined with finished inner seams through out. It wraps to close with a series of buttons inside at the waist and then the outer buttons as seen. Buttons across the top of the shoulder as well. There is a half hidden pocket just under the front button. All the buttons are engraved "Hermes Paris". Tagged a 38
