1970s Silk Chiffon Caftan Hanae Mori Dress

This is an incredible caftan feeling gown by Hanae Mori done completely in silk chiffon! The color of the silk is a beautiful green with subtle tones and shades of green making up the print. It is cut very full and loose on the top and has the illusion of being gathered up into the front waist. The effect is absolutely stunning. I love the fullness of the "sleeves " giving it an almost caped effect since the come right out from the waist and then drape over the seam at the waist. The neck is plunged for a bit of skin. The silk chiffon of the full length skirt cascades over the inner skirting and flows to the floor. It is just amazing and the construction very high end! Presents as excellent condition but please see next paragraph for some small condition issues.

Fully lined in a green silky rayon that shows slight wear but of course you do not see it when on. It slips on the wear and the front then closes with hidden snaps. There are some watermarks on the front bodice - please super size the 7th photo where we have lightened the color to make these even more apparent then they are. There is one teeny repair that gets lost in the front folds. I have priced this at about half of what it would normally be which is really a steal as I feel you could wear it as is and it is one of her finer. more coveted designs.
