The Givenchy of Rome

This dress comes with a money back guarantee: if you wear this dress to an event and someone else shows up wearing the same dress we will refund your money and eat our suede Sonia Rykiel hat!

Roberto Capucci is a master of skillful conceptual design and this 1960s dress is no exception. The top of the dress is quite simple and fitted, the waist is belted with an adorable bakelite flower and then comes the full bottom. The fullness comes from an ingenious collection of tubes. Now, what does that mean? It is a bit hard to describe but there is a silk underskirt and over this in slightly different lengths are tubes that start out narrow near the waist and gradually become slight wider towards the bottom. It all sounds very complicated and maybe even a little scary but the actual effect when it is on is very pretty. Size 4/6.
