Vintage Silky Draped Jersey Gown, 1970s
A breathtaking vintage maxi length evening dress from the 70s by Japanese born British fashion designer, Gnyuki Torimaru for his iconic label, Yuki. Many of his pieces have been featured in museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Known for his genius use of draping in exquisite jerseys, this dress is a fantastic example of this.
In a grey jersey which has beautiful fluid drape and movement, creating a waterfall effect at the back and sides. The wide, bell shaped sleeves are incredibly dramatic and are inspired by monastic and even kimono designs, highlighted with off-white cuffs that match the high neck. So artistic and avant garde yet flattering it would make such a statement for the hostess of a party or at a formal evening event. The draping gives an almost Grecian feeling silhouette but could also be worn with a belt (not included) to keep the incredible pleating but give a more fitted shape.
