1980s Krizia Gold Silk Lame' Pleated Evening Ensemble

$ 600.00

Gold lame' gets me all hot and bothered, but this particular fabric is making me swoon. It is 60% silk, 40% metallic, it shines like the sun, is light as air and is nearly sheer, except that it is so shimmery you really don't see through it. The silk fibers are black, toning the gold into deep, dark richness, with blazing bright highlights. The look is part goddess, part angel, part action hero. It is a 2 piece ensemble consisting of a long, straight skirt, sheer, unlined with a metal zipper and button closure at the waist. The top is a bit more complex. It is also unlined, but it crosses over itself in the front so it's a bit less revealing than if it was just one layer. The only closure are buttons at the neck, otherwise it is free to flow down the front. As you can see, one side is high, one side is low so there is a spiral effect along the bottom. You could belt the top which would created a peplum look on one side, but I like it long and cylindrical as shown.
