Recent Etro Gorgeous Printed Coral Ribbon Silk Chiffon Caftan Dress w Plunge Lace Up Neckline
Etro has been a long favorite of the jet set and they make some of the best printed silks in the world. This is a more recent dress that I think is from around 2015 but might be even more recent. I did find a reference to its twin sold at NAP so know that it originally retailed for just under $5k. It is in perfect condition and looks to have been worn very little if at all. I love it
The dress is made out of a feather light bias cut ribbon silk chiffon that sits over an inner lining of a brilliant coral silk chiffon. The inner layer is also bias cut to follow the top layer and these sit each other perfectly to drape over the body. The lightness of fabric feels wonderful once on the body. The neckline is cut into a low V and it is kept in place by laces in the same silk chiffon that each end in this gorgeous tassel. I love that the entire neckline is finished with a beaded and embroidered banding. Then there is a soft layer of ruffles surrounding that as well. It is so pretty. Another band of ruffle circles the waist and the waist itself has an inner elastic so that it is set a little more loose and easy. Each sleeve is cut to be full and balloon around your arm. At the top of each shoulder it is open for a little skin to show and this opening is also finished with ruffles. The cuffs are wide and full with another silk chiffon cord finished in tassels to allow you to cinch them in around your wrist. The skirt falls in this extravagant swoosh of bias cut silk. It falls over you in a loose and easy way for an almost caftan feel to it. The bottom of the skirt is made with three tiers of the silk and each one widens out as it nears the hem so it's very full. The lining inside goes to just above the knees so you have a sense of transparency through the silk on the lower part of the skirt. All that feather light chiffon swirls around your legs when you move and it is incredible. The silk is done in one of their signature paisley designs and the bright coral of it is stunning. It is like a huge silk scarf made into this fabulous creation that gives it its fabulously glamorous bohemian feel. It is immensely flattering once on and should work an a wide variety of shapes. This is a dress you will want to wear over and over for every summer occasion from day to evening. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition
The body of the dress is fully lined in a coral silk chiffon. The sleeves are unlined and the lining ends just above the knees. It closes with a hidden set side zipper and you can also adjust the front with the laces. Tagged a 42. The loose and easy cut should work on a range of sizes. On a smaller frame it will just feel more like a caftan
