Ever the lover of minimalism Mr Galanos has masterfully brought class as well as spunk to the classic little black dress. Fitted snug under and around the bust, the cups held in place with elegant spaghetti straps. The skirt kicks out thanks to deep box pleats, some of which work as slits. The mastery lies here in the balance of black and white, from the insides of the pleats to the outside of the bust. Drawing just the right amount of attention to the body he knows his classy customers would like.
