Wonderfully crafted multi scale print silk maxi dress by Bessi. This dress has an elegant mandarin collar that can be worn open or closed. Long sleeves are pinch pleaded at the cuff. There is a wide large scale floral print accentuating the waist and hem. The flowers fade from small to large down the front of the skirt. It is fully lined with peach "Bessi" monogrammed silk.
Let's talk about this print! It has just the right amount of asymmetry that gives this dress some artsy charm!
Averardo Bessi originally released his designs in 1950's Florence and his brand still flourishes today!

This 1970s mod (with a nod to art nouveau revival) dress by Lanvin is absolutely gorgeous! The dress features long, full cuffed sleeves, an exaggerated pointed wing collar, and includes a wide sash belt. The shirtwaist dress buttons from hem to collar. The amazing floral print begins as a woven geometric design that blooms upwards into flowers. The print's vibrant azure blue, apple green, and bold Hollywood pink lie vividly against a white background. Fantastic!
