Zandra Rhodes Pink Silk Printed Caftan, 1980s


Zandra Rhodes is one of the original queens of eccentric. Her bold silhouettes and even bolder colors marked a fashion revolution in the 70s through the 80s that is being reembraced today. With several museum shows paying homage to Rhodes’ work, her aesthetic has been revitalized as an icon of the past and a trend of the present. Made from a pleated silk, this caftan style dress boasts a demure yet animated print, a combination of pale pink, grey, and lemon chiffon stripes and pixelated swirls on a black ground.

A straight silhouette that plays with the stripes and vertical pleats gives this dress a regal presence. Accenting the front and back yokes and around the neck, ruffles provide a vintage texture to design that is mirrored by the lettuce finish at the sleeves and hemline. The light fabric allows for excellent movement and comfort during wear. This caftan could be worn as the perfect overdress with a pair of sleek jeans for a modern-retro style combination.
