1980s McLaren - Westwood Worlds End Dress

$ 0.00
I'm not sure exactly which collection this beauty was from. My best guess would be the Savage Collection, but I have never seen this fabric before so I can't be sure. I am sure its an early World's End, Westwood / McLaren, and I am perfectly sure it is rare and very wonderful.
The body of the dress is made from super soft, cotton jersey, slightly lighter in weight than a normal t-shirt. The sleeves and those incredible wings that fall from the shoulders are a woven cotton, almost like a gauze. The mint green stripes are actually raised from the fabric, like little flat caterpillar. The ends of the sleeves are finished with the jersey. Notice how they continue to past the knuckle if you let them. The neck, hem and sleeves have unfinished edges, so they naturally roll up for a rough, punky look.
The wings as I call them are attached only at the shoulders, creating a cape like look.
