Gianfranco Ferre Vintage Avant Garde Collared Black Sheer Raw Silk Organza Draping Tail Duster
Remarkable vintage Gianfranco Ferre piece from the late 80s/early 90s. This thing is an absolute show stopper. Made of woven matte raw silk organza in black, with two tapered pieces that taper in size and drape at the sides. Solid silk black collar, closes with one single faceted black button at the neck. Two long leather strips suspend from the back of the collar, and look great wrapped around to cinch the piece at the waist as we've shown in the photos above. Looks equally as incredible draping as a form-free piece with the leather straps dangling as a design detail from the backside. Large dramatic french-style cuffs that can be worn as shown or flipped up, with holes at each wrist that utilize the original oversized gold gilt baroque safety pins for closure. Wowza!
