1970s Leonard Paris Strapless Floral Silk Jersey Tube Dress With Attached Shawl


Leonard Paris is known for its mouthwatering prints, like the one found on this fabulous dress from the Seventies. A garden of watercolored flowers in vivid pinks, reds, blues and greens beautifully blooms on the strapless silk jersey column silhouette. Engineered for the most striking placement, the bouquet spills across the body onto a black background before meeting a contrasting trim along the bustline, down the sides and around the ankle-length hem. It also decorates the gorgeous silk chiffon shawl, which is attached to the side at the hip. Drape the long, flowing addition any way you wish—over one shoulder or the other—for a dramatic entrance to a garden party or evening affair.
