Eye-catching Geoffrey Beene designer novelty New York print mid-weight wool knit maxi dress dating back to the early 1970's. Geoffrey Beene made strong impressions with his courteous manner as well as his highly original style. He was a champion of minimalist design. 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. I love the flattering thin duel-strap halter empire bodice. The button trimmed backless design takes this garment to new levels. The "easy to wear" pleated maxi length silhouette lets one feel comfort while exuding style. For every woman, novelty prints are a fashion must-have. It's a style for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless. The beautiful black, red and ivory deco style print is a beautiful tribute to a city we all know and love, New York. A rare collector's piece from one of America's greatest designers.
