Designer ensemble from Geoffrey Beene featuring a long wool knit printed dress with floral motifs & silk matelasse bodice. The beautifully quilted bolero has faux front pockets and star buttons and is lined in printed silk. The eight inch hem is quilted adding weight and form. On top of everything it comes with a belt/scarf made of the same fabric as the bodice with large pom poms. This ensemble is a wonderful addition to your fall and winter wardrobe!
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
