Well if you ever needed a dress with strutting power, this would be it! From the late 1960s early 1970s, this monochrome maxi dress has a fabulous caped overskirt that flows from the empire waistline, creating a wonderful billowing as you walk along. The large bold print is daring and perfect nod to the Op Art of the time, and is just gagging for the addition of a set of bright coloured accessories to finish of this fab outfit. 

We advise paying close attention to the actual measurements of the garment. Please get in touch if you have any questions.


• Fabulous 'cape' overskirt that flows from the empire waistline, wafting as you walk
• Large monochrome floral and swirl print
• Black bow to the front on the waist
• Sleeveless, fitted bodice with darts to the bust and scooped neckline
• Overskirt is not attached to the bottom of the zip
• Matching chiffon sash to the waist with belt loops
• Fastens using a metal zip to the back, Aero brand, and a hook and loop to the top
• Top lined in an acetate lining
• Made from mid weight polyester knit, and lined with acetate
• Frederick Howard of London label to the back, with the Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge label to the other side


There is a a small pin head hole to the back of one shoulder and a slight staining the the lining under the pits, which is hidden when worn. The bottom of the skirt looks a little browner than the rest of the dress, which appears to be a fading to the dye as the white is not affected. This is probably an age issue and I would consider this to not be massively noticeable.
