Zandra Rhodes Vintage Hand Painted Silk & Leather Halter Top & Skirt Set

$1,600

Outspoken, unapologetic, and always fabulous, London based designer Dame Zandra Rhodes is an icon of the bohemian bricolage aesthetic. With over 50 years in fashion, Rhodes’s designs have graced many issues of Vogue magazine and have been famously worn by the likes of Princess Diana, Freddie Mercury, and Diana Ross. Her pieces are highly sought after and becoming harder to find, so it’s always exciting to get a new Zandra Rhodes piece in the shop!

Possibly from the Zandra Rhodes Punk collection, this beautiful top and skirt set seduces and fascinates at once. Done in black silk chiffon, the skirt and top feature a lively hand-painted abstract floral design in neon shades of orange, fuchsia, and emerald. The set has undeniable art-deco overtones, from the geometric designs to the jeweled accents and beaded trim that work wonderfully with the punk-inspired elements.

The top begins with a black leather halter neckline, matching scalloped leather shoulder straps, and cold-shoulder chiffon sleeves. The neckline and straps are adorned with prong-set amber crystals that glitter and draw the eye upwards. The top is adorned with iridescent, feather-shaped purple sequins and a long semi-circle of pink and white beads that create the impression of a necklace. The sheer tiered sleeves flutter just above the elbows and are held in place with dainty chiffon ties, adding a note of elegance.

The layered handkerchief skirt falls just above the knee, save for the long points of chiffon which extend to the calves and are embellished with bright fuchsia beads. The top and skirt flow seamlessly together, creating a flowy, feminine silhouette and could easily be mistaken for a dress. The skirt and top are finished with a trim of fuchsia beads throughout that serve to outline the print while defining each delicate layer of chiffon.

A bold addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this gorgeous Zandra Rhodes top and skirt set is the perfect choice for a wedding, evening soiree, or special occasion, and can easily be styled with strappy heels and statement accessories.

In excellent condition, this Zandra Rhodes ensemble is lined in a double layer of silk chiffon at the top and skirt and has closures at the back of the neck and the sleeves. 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.
