Rare 1960s Sequin Valentino Couture Top

This is an extraordinary find! It is a stunning piece of Valentino that is entirely hand finished and in perfect condition. The finest black silk chiffon has little dots of tightly spaced glossy black sequins, ringed with silver toned glass seed beads. These are applied onto the silk and graduate slightly in size as they near the hem. The neck, cuffs and waist are a soft knit ribbing that has stretch to it. It is very chic and very refined and very, very Valentino! Excellent condition.
