Prettiest Resort 2017 Gucci by Alessandro Michele Black & White Polka Dot Silk Chiffon Dress

I love that this dress shows you the opposite end of the spectrum when it comes to Gucci. The other Gucci I am listing today is from the Tom Ford era and then you have this one from the Alessandro Michele era. The twin of the dress was shown for the Resort 2017 show for Look 10. It was one of the dresses from that show that was featured predominantly in many publications as well as being worn on the red carpet. This is always been one of my favourites from his work for the label and I am very pleased to have it in the shop. It is so pretty.

If you love an amazing dot moment then this is the dress for you. It is made out of a black silk chiffon with prominent white dots covering the entire surface of the dress. The neckline is high and finished with a wide ruffle for a pretty touch. Around the top of the neck is an attached black grow grain ribbon that is set to the side, where it ties and then has ribbons that trail down the front. A pretty floral pin sits there to hold the tie in place and add an extra bit of detailing. The shoulders are soft and the sleeves are very full above their cuffs. Each cuff has been finished with a pink silk ribbon and then that has a simple row of prong set rhinestones and faux pearls set all the way around the wrist. I love this little detail and the movement that the sleeves add to the dress. The top is cut to blouse over you and the waist line is set loose and easy with no defined seam. It skims over the hips from there to the floor. Onto the dress from the shoulder down to the hip is a ruffle that curves over you and then that ruffle goes behind you and down one side of the skirt. There is another ruffle that is picked up and goes down the other side of the skirt. When this is on and you are moving it is incredible. The dress has a touch of a 1920s, 1930s vibe to it that I love. This is a dress that you just throw on and it instantly drapes and falls into place perfectly each time. I love that you can pair it with different colour accessories to give it a fresh feel. It's very pretty and very easy to wear. Excellent condition with minor note below.

Fully lined in a black silk chiffon and closes with a hidden set side, zipper and buttons at the back of the neck above a keyhole. I see a line running down the bodice of the silk and there are a couple tiny ones here and there. One button on the neck has been replaced. Please see the photo after the label shot.
