There's no mistaking the 1960s vibes in this sensational maxi dress. Designed by Philip Kunick, chairman of Outsize Fashion in the 1960s, this fitted into his range of fashions made for real women - not svelte catwalk models.
Ankle length, the dress is fully lined apart from the long sleeves and fastens at the back with it's original zipper in good working order. Another great design feature is the neck tie which fastens at the back, giving a small cowl collar look at the front. The tie hooks through a wide loop on the left shoulder.
The tapered sleeve fastens at the cuff with a single prestud and the dress is tailored at the bust and back. The skirt of the dress falls in a gentle A-line and has a hand stitched hem - a design feature I particularly like which shows how much attention to detail was shown.
The bold geometric pattern in pale bronze and dark blue runs in horizontal lines around the dress giving a striking appearance.
Beautifully made, this is a vintage piece to treasure.
