Missoni Brown Blue Purple Silk Velvet Pansy Print Crystal Dress 1930s Style


Typically, Missoni goes for less representational mixtures of prints and vivid colors. In 2006, the Spring collection was all about the styles being feminine, pretty, and flirty which meant soft drapes, sparkles, and of course, florals. Showcasing all of the key elements from that collection, this dress is made from a bias-cut silk-rayon velvet. This material combination is an astounding option to add movement and texture to the design.

On the light umber ground, pansies in cool shades of red-violet, orchid, cerulean, baby blue, and tan float throughout the dress. Accentuating the bust, a plunging V-neckline meets an ornate arabesque belt embellished with pewter colored beads and aquamarine rhinestones. The maxi length of this dress paired with the both neutral and vivid tones allow for this dress to make for an upscale occasion or a date-night option.

On the back, the dress closes with caramel-toned ball buttons.

High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
