Easy to Wear Early 2000s Thakoon Bright Orange Coral Scarf Weight Silk Shift Dress

This is a cute and easy to wear dress by Thakoon that looks like it was never worn. Thakoon launched his brand in September 2004 and this is a dress from very early on in his career. It is made from a scarf weight silk done in a bright coral orange. It is a very easy to wear piece with its loose and open cut through the body. You just slip it over the head and go. The sleeves are elbow length and finished with piping at the ends. The neckline is cut straight across so you have a little skin showing. It is cut loose and easy over the bust and through the waist. There is a bit of a gather at the front of the waist to add a touch of shape and then the skirt falls over that and widens out a touch as it nears the hem. When it is on the front comes up a touch. It is meant to be worn loose and easy and is super easy to wear. Great for day or evening. Just a fabulous dress when you want to have maximum comfort but still have that impact of colour. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on to wear with a hidden set zipper at one side. Tagged a US 12. There is one tiny smudge dot of a mark on the back. Please see the final photo. You can barely even see it in the shot but I have included it anyway
