'Mount Olympus' Comes to Zeus Vintage - Zandra Rhodes Suede Dress October 11 2015, 0 Comments

 

Earlier this week, an amazing dress, fit for a true bohemian goddess and designed by the iconic and eccentric designer Zandra Rhodes, hit the store! Named after the home of the Gods itself, this dress was part of a collection called 'Mount Olympus' c. Spring/ Summer 1983. 

In a thick silk noil which gives it the most amazing drape, this is an incredibly rare example of the couture bohemian luxe aesthetic that Zandra was known for. With a suede yoke that is perforated and screen printed with the statement 'Jungle Trail' border that was also featured in her earlier 'Medieval Collection'.   

This incredible vintage Zandra Rhodes dress is not only so very wearable but practical too! With two deep pockets to store whatever a woman with such exceptional taste wants to carry. If you are interested in finding out more about the 'Mount Olympus' collection then check out the Visual Arts Data Service's website and see some original sketches and other pieces in the collection here

Oh and of course, be sure to take a peek at the other Zandra Rhodes pieces we currently have in stock, including a 1980's printed velvet dress and a 1976 'Cactus & Cowboys' hand crafted frock.
