Breathtaking, iconic and instantly recognizable maxi dress by Hanae Mori dating back to early 1970'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 everything you look for in a Hanae Mori garment. Made of feather light silk chiffon that has been custom screened with one of her stunning large-scale butterfly floral novelty prints. The dress is also lined in pure silk so it literally feels weightless! The mix of light-pink and blue with surprising pops of color is pure Hanae. I adore the chic high neck, long sleeve tailored bodice. There iare even butterflies appliqued by the wrists. This figure flattering garment skimming the hips in a unique asymmetric scalloped design. A stunning vintage treasure that will work perfectly for any modern event.

Bust: 34-35 inches
