Breathtaking Geoffrey Beene documented black wool and feather cocktail dress dating back to his 1967 fall-winter 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 perfect "little black dress" is a beautiful example of his genius. Ultra flattering fitted bodice with classic curved empire waistline. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flows in such an elegant way. The dramatic feather hemline takes the concept of a cocktail dress to new levels! This is the type of garment you will reach for over and over. A real treasure and one of the best constructed dresses I have seen.
