The Lightness of Being: Geoffrey Beene

Geoffrey Beene created spiraling seams in chiffon and weightless jerseys that moved around a woman's body with a lightness of being that was unique to one of America's most celebrated and innovative designers.  

This is the beginning of an exceptional collection of Geoffrey Beene.  Here is a study in black, white and gleaming silver from the Spring of 1990.  Check the RARE vintage blog often over the next few days - wonderful things are coming!
