Jean Muir

This is a rare earlier piece by Jean Muir, dating to around 1969/70 I would say, in the best deep, deep purple/burgundy shade. The bodice is in a jersey crepe, perfectly pintucked from the shoulders and with self-covered buttons down the front. The sleeves and skirt are lace, which is layered in the skirt. Muir refined her look over the years, using a narrower range of fabrics and very few pieces with multiple fabrics, so this is a very rare example of her earlier, more experimental work. It's also hugely wearable and the most perfect Autumnal dress...

Measurements:

Bust 35" - High waist 29" - Hips free - Length 50"

Fabric:

Jersey crepe and lace

Flaws:

Slightly grubby inside the collar. A small mend on the inside of the button placket, which is barely visible on the outside. A few marks on the lace in the skirt. These flaws have been taken into consideration with the price. Sold as vintage.
