Prettiest 1970s Hanae Mori Printed Black & Green Floral Easy to Wear Jersey Dress

Hanae was the first woman of Japanese descent to have presented on the Paris and New York runways and the first Asian woman to be admitted as an official Haute Couture house to La Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Her work is exceptional. Hanae Mori excelled at these beautiful floral prints and when I find pieces with one of her florals and butterflies I am very happy. I feel that pieces like this are among the very best representations of her work.

I love whenever I get a fabulous Hanae dress into the shop. I especially love her jersey pieces when I find them. They are so chic. They are also very easy to wear and travel with. This one is a real beauty. It is made out of one of her signature floral prints with butterflies mixed in. That is screened over a wash and wear jersey fabric. This jersey fabric choice give the dress its perfect drape and fit. Each of her flower prints were custom designed and this one is one of the best I have had with its gorgeous pops of green. The colour palette is a beautiful mix of green and white on the black and then the flowers and butterflies give it pops of pink and blue. The print runs over the entire dress and is very pretty. At the front the bodice plunges and crosses over itself for a bit of skin to show. Each amazing sleeve is cut to pouf and balloon out over the cuff with extra fullness over the wrists. It skims over the waist with a an easy cut and then the skirt falls to the floor, gently flaring out as it nears the hem. It is cut super model long and it is a beauty. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a back metal and nylon zipper. Each sleeve snaps to close on the cuff. Tagged a vintage 10 and the fabric has stretch. The measurements below are the comfortable range laying flat
