Iconic Spring 1992 Versace by Gianni Versace Jeans Couture Floral Print Full Skirt Halter Mini Dress
These full skirted mini dresses appeared in both the ready-to-wear and couture show for the spring 1992 season. Included a ton of reference photos to show you the many designs that were done of this dress and to show you how fantastic the cut is once on the body. The collection paired past and present design elements and many of these dresses were shown with cropped denim overtop. He softened his usual baroque patterns with flower designs mixed in. Even with that added softness the entire collection, and especially these dresses, was still extremely sexy and he himself said the attitude of the show was 'pinup girl'. This is an exceptionally fabulous dress and shows why his work is as highly valued as it is.
I love this dress. It is made out of a blue cotton mix that has one of his famous Versace patterns over its entire surface mixed with florals. Tiny straps curve over the shoulders and these straps are removable. Take them off and it instantly converts to a strapless dress. A gold lame piping highlights the cotton design of the dress and adds a bit of glitz. More of the gold lame has been box pleated and added around the entire hem of the very full skirt. The bodice is meant to be more fitted and a border plunges down the center at the front. There are three straps going across the plunge to give that signature little hint of bondage that you see so often in his work. The waist nips in with an angled band edged in the gold cord to add definition there. The skirt is spectacular. It is set in around the waist in these big box pleats that widen out as they near the hem. This gives the skirt incredible fullness. To help hold that fullness there is a built-in layer of a royal blue tulle underneath the skirt that helps to hold it shape. When you move or twirl or sit you get just a glimpse of this. If you wanted it to be really full you could add an additional crinoline underneath to really give it that full on runway feel. That gold edge that I mention above that runs all the way around the bottom is the perfect finishing touch. It is an amazing dress and instantly recognizable as one of his pieces. Excellent condition with a small note below.
Fully lined through the bodice in a blue silky rayon and the skirt has the added layer of tulle. It closes with a side set zipper. I see a couple of small marks on one side of the bust that are very faint. Please see the photo after the label shot. Repairs to the inner tulle. Tagged a vintage Versace 40.
