SUBLIME 1920's Inky Black Silk Charmeuse Avant Garde Evening Dress / Medium

| /

👋 A B O U T

Rare and utterly sublime 1920's inky black silk charmeuse evening dress. This piece came to me from an exclusive estate and has been tucked away in storage for decades. Remarkably modern and contemporary looking with sensual details that are just exquisite. The bodice is worn loosely with a plunging keyhole neckline. The hips are accented by shirring at the center front and ties that pull in the waist. The hem is cut in squares to form a high low hanky hem. Slips on easily over the head. Meticulously made and tailored to perfection. A truly timeless piece reminiscent of Chanel’s early work. In overall excellent condition, clean and ready to wear.
