Breathtaking Hanae Mori Couture museum-quality abstract splatter print silk dress dating back to the late 1960's. Whilst on a Paris holiday in 1960, Mori had a fateful fitting with Coco Chanel. She claimed this meeting changed her life and she challenged herself to realize her own dream of designing Haute-Couture. By 1965 she had launched her own collection and had orders from prestigious stores such as Neiman Marcus. This is a rare Hanae Mori garment, as you normally find her large-scale floral designs. Made of high quality mid-weight ivory silk that looks to be custom screened in a cobalt-blue, caramel and black abstract design. The perfect mix of colors is pure Hanae and the garment is also lined in pure silk so it also feels luxurious. The bodice has gorgeous tailoring and long-sleeves with a slight bell. This figure flattering mod garment skims the hips with a-line sculpted middle front pleat skirting. A timeless dress that is perfect for any modern event.
