There is a reason why Jean Varon creations are still sought after, and this is why. His work is just so full of drama and the silhouettes are always a dream. This dress from the 1970s would make Kate Bush jealous with its triangular sheer cape to the front and back that is begging to be wafted about in a care free manner. The print is wonderful, delicate but graphic, and the colours are classic with the camel balancing the red and black. With the sheer sleeve, it shows a little skin so that the fullness of the dress does not overwhelm your figure. Certainly a dress for a serious vintage designer collector, this is a wonderful addition to a wardrobe that will see you through many a party and event in style and comfort.

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