Vintage 1980s Silk Caftan Dress / Saks Fifth Ave
Very rare two piece silk resort dress from Saks Fifth Ave. Connoisseur Suite. Hand painted and hand sewn in France. Raspberry red with blue trim. Set consists of a wrap style maxi skirt with elastic waistband and a square cut kaftan style blouse.
**Please Note** the blouse drapes over the head and the front side corners wrap around at the hip, fastening with just a single set of snaps/hooks at your lower back. The back side has no fastening and is left to drape open. It does seem like a strange design but I see no evidence of any other clasps or snaps that were removed so I have to assume this is the original design. You can see this in the 3rd photo.
Set is in excellent condition apart from a few small faint spots, see these in last photo.
No size tag. Shown on a US size 10 dress form, not pinned or clipped.
Please refer to measurements in inches taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
