Italian-inspired Pop print set. Silhouette is short & boxy atop an extravagantly-narrow line.
Black linen dress has princess seams (with hidden pockets), a defined waist & a narrow, pencil silhouette. The dress closes with a back metal zipper. Fully-lined. A colorful belt with large metal buckle matches the jacket --- the belt's sash snaps into a sculptural triangle past the buckle. The soft jacket is short, dart-fitted and lined, with bracelet-length sleeves. Jacket and belt feature a striking textile -- a expressive abstraction in golds, tulip-pink, orange, silvers, black and white --- that is at once fresh -and- quintessentially-Sixties.
A gorgeous creation by Shannon Rodgers for Jerry Silverman. According to the Vintage Fashion Guild, Rodgers & Silverman were "known for doing Americanized versions of Balenciaga designs".
