Gorgeous Geoffrey Beene museum-held leopard print maxi dress dating back to his 1965 collection. Geoffrey Beene made strong impressions with his courteous manner as well as his highly original style. He was a champion of minimalist design. His body-contoured dresses were marvels of cut and proportion. Beene’s view of style was more about function than fad. His clothes were structured but never rigid and rely on the craftsmanship of careful detail. This seductive garment is fashioned from light-weight novelty aimal print silk taffeta. The whole garment wraps around without any zippers and the effect is so effortlessly chic. The figure flattering strapless empire silhouette accentuates the bust while skimming the hips in such an elegant way. A very rare collector's piece from one of America's greatest designers.
