Spring 2001 Tom Ford for Gucci Black Bustier Dress

"Sex is in the air" declared the reviews for the Tom Ford for Gucci Spring 2001 Collection. The collection featured dominatrix inspired looks with rigid bustiers and fitted silhouettes. This little black number quintessentially represents his sleek sexiness and it is a look he referenced again and again as his career progressed. On the runway it was shown in several variations, most notably in a mesh covered version on Kate Moss that is the same dress but was done in the different fabrication. This little black dress version is made of a polished cotton & silk mix and the dress has formed bustier cups seamed like lingerie. More seaming and boning are worked through the torso to create and suggest a corset. It skims over the hip and follows your curves to just past the knee. So sexy on! Excellent condition.

Fully lined in the Gucci signature black, ribbed silky rayon. It closes with a back, hidden set zipper. Each bra-like cup is lined in black mesh with a padded insert. Tagged a 42 but please check the actual measurements as it runs small.
