Scaasi embroidered piqué dress, 1980s
Although Scaasi is known as a superb colorist, he shows here that he can do the "little black dress" with equal mastery. The effect is based on his finely honed sense of shape. The wide off-the-shoulder collar is decorated with charming white embroidered flowers.
With his signature off-the-shoulder neckline, the chic dress bespeaks the self-confidence of a woman who knows where she is going, yet enjoys her femininity. She is animated, intelligent, original—a stylish and captivating woman.
Made from black cotton piqué and lined with black silk, the finishing is exceptional. It is interlined as well as lined and has a stiffened hem to hold the skirt shape. It closes in back with an invisible zipper.
The condition is excellent and wearable.
The size is marked US 12.
It measures: 38" bust, 30" waist, 44" hip, 17" from the shoulder to the waist, and 40" from the shoulder to the hem.
