Wonderful late 70’s dress featuring the iconic geometric forms Bessi was best known for! The dress falls below the knee, has long sleeves, a jewel neckline, and a faux wrap skirt with free panel. The neckline, cuffs, hem, and waist of the dress are highlighted by a narrow ribbon - like print of stacked geometric flowers. The shoulders feature a slight structured puff to them, forseeing the large accent shoulders of the 1980s. Print includes the subtle but scintillating "Bessi" signature.
Averardo Bessi has been producing colorful, playful, and intricate textile designs since 1950. Bessi' first collection was presented to the world in 1968, quickly leading the designer to become an internationally known force.
Dramatic and macabre skull necklace by Knight & Hammer. We adore this bold opera length necklace, with black enamel chain accented by four brilliant, polished gold skulls. Wear to the opera (and scandalize!) or over that perfect white tee with jeans (and scandalize!). A truly flexible necklace!
We're really feeling an Alexander McQueen / Damian Hirst "For the Love of God" rhinestone skull vibe from this piece.

Simply astounding evening dress ensemble by Pauline Trigere. The ensemble consists of a dramatic skirt and matching cardigan. The skirt is maxi length with an A - line silhouette and narrow waistband. The cardigan is hip length, with long sleeves and an open front. The ensemble is fabulous, with sheer black base and scalloped devore burnout velvet that shimmers beautifully. Wear with a black silk romper (or our listed silver lame Pauline Trigere romper!) topped with the cardigan tucked wrap - like into the skirt for some 70s studio 54 fabulousness!
