Artistic details and understated print and color are cause for celebration in this classic late 1960s mod A-Line dress by Pierre Cardin! We at Mrs. Couture have never seen anything like this in our years of collecting and searching through archives of the late Mr. Cardin. Sleeveless with drop waist, its details continue along the hem. Small red and white checkered print cotton fabric is both interesting and unexpected. A padded neck and waist design creates a special look for this already special dress. Another classic that can be worn anytime to any occasion. This is a dress for the ages -- not just the space age!!!

Eye catching printed maxi dress from Geoffrey Beene! This soft cotton dress features a dazzling print that is divided into sections throughout the dress by black trimming which Beene is often known for using. It has two hidden side seam pockets and zips at the back with hook and eye closure for the collar. It also comes with a triangular head scarf that can be variously styled.
Geoffrey Beene began his career in the 1950s, designing under numerous New York houses including Teal Traina, finally opening his own label in 1963. Beene was incredibly conscious of the human body, and was particularly regardful of the figure in motion - as Beene once said“clothing is nothing until it hits the body." His designs were created to work with the client’s body, encasing it lightly and giving it a more artful structure. Beene's reinterpretations of dress formality, use of synthetics, and unusual combination of materials (accessories in acrylic and diamonds, for example), set him aside from his contemporaries who focused on the business of fashion, rather than the artistry of fashion.
