Breathtaking Galanos couture large-scale butterfly print nude silk chiffon dress set dating back to his 1969 collection. Dedication to excellence in craftsmanship and design was the foundation of James Galanos' long career. The quality of workmanship found in his clothing is unsurpassed in America today. The fabric choice for this dress is stunning; the highest quality 'feather light' lined psychedelic butterfly motif silk chiffon in beautiful nude earth-tones. This gorgeous look is made up of two garments that actually also look fantastic styled separately. The sleeveless dress has a flattering low-back shift silhouette that skims the hip in such a flattering way. The incredible sheer outer lay has the prettiest tri-bow back closures. He uses ingenious inverted pleat work which gives the garment so much depth and texture. Just look at the amazing lean, long smocked zipper-wrist sleeves. We added many pictures so you could understand this masterful achievement. It is so rare that a dress with this amount of detail and presence can literally feel almost weightless but it does. So romantic and rare.
