Missoni Embellished Silk Print Halter Dress F/W 2005


Famed for their iconic kaleidoscopic knits, Missoni crafts jersey fabric into comfortable, creative clothing. Since the conception of the brand in the 1950s, Missoni has mastered the art of pattern mixing and color combinations. Their 80’s inspired 2005 Fall/Winter collection featured an array of pastel tube skirts, camisoles, and chiffon dresses in floral prints and the House’s classic zig-zag knits, which were memorably paired with wide belts and strappy silk heels.

As seen on that season’s runway, this beautiful halter dress mesmerizes and fascinates at once. Done in silk, the dress features a floral print in pastel shades of blue, olive, yellow, lavender, black, and pink on a crème ground. The sleeveless design begins with a flattering halter neckline that accentuates the shoulders. The silk fabric is gently ruched throughout, giving the knee-length dress extra texture and volume.

The collar, center front, and center back of the dress are embellished with a band of metallic purple and gold-tone flowers that are further adorned with glittering orange, white, and grey crystals. The ornate design emphasizes the natural lines of the body while drawing the eye upwards, adding a satisfying note of drama that also frames the zig-zag patchwork of colorful flower petals.

A delightful addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this chic dress can easily be styled with strappy heels and statement accessories and is the perfect choice for a wedding, evening soiree, or special occasion.

This Missoni dress is fully lined in pink silk and has a concealed side zip closure. In excellent condition, it has been professionally eco-dry cleaned and pressed. 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.
