1920s Ingeniously Draped Cornflower Blue Chiffon Dress

$ 788.00


This dress is a beautiful take on the modernist minimal movement of the 1920s. The cornflower blue was the shade of the decade, said to be flattering to most skin types as read in Vogue of the period. The design is simple yet intelligent. The body is cut straight and loose, here we've belted it. Then there are two tiers to the skirt. Which is cut as though it was a circle skirt yet the pieces of fabric are actually squares. This dress is all geometry. The soft nature of the silk chiffon utilized in the right areas on the bias are what bring the feminine shape to the sharp lines of the construction. Resulting in a clean lined beauty ready for anything.
