Recent Ivory Valentino by Pier Paolo Piccioli w Draped Cape Back Panel & Bare Upper Back

This is a more recent dress by Valentino and it looks to have never been worn or worn very little. Its simple lines and perfect ivory make it the perfect dress for someone that loves minimalism. It has such a simple and elegant lines that are immensely flattering at the same time. The fabric is that fine wool with a touch of silk in it that became a Valentino signature under Pier. The dress does not have a single unnecessary seam. Even with its simplicity it would still be a dress that is red carpet worthy or would make an amazing wedding dress for the bride looking for a non-traditional choice or as an alternative dress in a more extended wedding celebration. And of course it could also be worn to any other event. 

The fabric used has a beautiful drape that is just heavy enough to hold the lines and shape of the dress and still feel easy to wear. It lets it move so beautifully over the body once it is on. It is constructed so that it drapes and skims over the body perfectly. The bodice is cut into a bit of a squared off shape and it extends into wider straps. These curve up and over the shoulder, and then narrow down into slimmer straps that connect to the low back. The upper back is left bare and this contrast to the more covered front is very pretty and adds a touch of subtle sexiness. The skirt falls to the floor in a sweeping expanse of fabric that becomes quite wide as it nears the hem. Coming out from the seam that runs along the low back is the second panel of fabric that sweeps out and around you to create a draping effect. It falls to the floor to create this elegant and dramatic sweep of fabric behind you. It is very beautiful and it has pockets. Excellent condition 

Fully lined in an ivory silk and closes with a hidden set back zipper. It looks to have been worn very little if at all. Tagged a modern Valentino size 42.
