House Cream & Red Knit Dress, 1980s
A rare 1980s vintage Moschino surrealist house knit dress. In a cream Italian wool blend knitted fabric with fabric appliques to give a surrealist house theme. The 'roof' is made by red wavy lace appliqués over a red knit fabric which gives a textured, 'tiled' effect. The 'windows' are formed by layered appliques with green organza curtains tied with light blue satin ribbons. The 'door' towards the bottom of the dress is made from felted appliqués with a single embroidered heart logo patch on the front, which gives a folksy, whimsical feel which is furthered by the flower embroidery trim to the hem creating a 'garden'. This incredibly rare dress is a great example of Moschino's humour and love of surrealism.
