Basha Gold

Oscar de La Renta Paisley Print Palazzo Jumpsuit, 1970s

$1,800

Dominican born designer Oscar de la Renta is a legend in the realm of fashion. Launching his own brand in 1965 after working for iconic designers such as Balenciaga, de la Renta quickly established himself as the standard for class, elegance, and glamour.

From the 1970s, this elegant silk palazzo jumpsuit features a psychedelic paisley print in shades of magenta, purple, chartreuse, bright blue, green, and yellow. Gold lame flecks are interspersed throughout, adding luster to the mesmerizing display of color. The bodice begins with a sleeveless jewel neckline and features a beautifully draped attached cape overlay that brings a fullness to the otherwise columnar silhouette of the jumpsuit.

The sheer overlay has a ruffled high low-hem that reaches three quarters of the way down the arms at the front, creating the illusion of angel sleeves—and reaches nearly halfway down the length of the jumpsuit at the back for a more dramatic effect. The overlay may be worn as a cape, or can be gathered and pulled back over the shoulders for a sleeveless look.
