Gorgeous 1970s Mr. Dino Elaborate Print Mini Shift Dress in Turquoise & Yellows

Max Cohen is the man who launched the Mr Dino label and he is interesting for two specific things. He actually invented the machine that he used to screen the print onto the fabric of his pieces and he designed every print that you will ever see on one of his garments. I love that fact and it makes his pieces that much more interesting to look at. This dress is quite wonderful with its simple lines and an elaborate print that counteracts that simplicity. It is also made out of his signature, washable jersey fabric that is easy to wear, pack and travel with. The collar is high and the sleeves are long. It skims over your body in a simple shift with a loose and easy cut waist. The skirt is cut straight from there skimming over the hips to a few inches above the knee depending on your height. I love the bold turquoise print with its pops of yellow on an ivory backdrop. It is intricate and covers the entire dress. The pattern would have had to have been pre-thought out and laid out before by hand to achieve the look you see. Doing that allows the design and the color to showcase the different parts of the dress. It is gorgeous. Excellent condition
