Vintage Leonard Paris Vibrant Jewel Print Silk Dress Ensemble
Exceptionally balanced with rich hues and a field of black, this vintage Leonard dress ensemble is an artisanal work of art. Typically using less figurative prints, this bodysuit and skirt use a jewel and floral print with vivid reds, yellows, purple, and aquamarine. Though two pieces, the dress ensemble gives a seamless dress effect with a flirty silhouette à la 1950s.
A plunging neckline bordered by red and gold meets just under the bust as the fitted long sleeves and padded shoulders add a dash of modesty to the look. As a bodysuit, the garment is fitted and shapes the body through the waist and finishes in a French-cut panty style on the bottom.
On the skirt, red and gold borders run around the waistband and hem echoing the neckline of the body suit. Layered with a built-in tulle petticoat, the skirt has an incredible and feminine volume that showcases the softer undulation in the skirt that contrast the sleek upper portion. Filled with a classic charm, this ensemble is perfect when worn together but can absolutely by styled separately to be worn to a variety of events.
