Adolfo, you're a Star.

This is only the second Adolfo piece we have had in the store for the past six years. The reason is most Adolfo is just not that good. For the most part all they did was copy Chanel suiting, creating a line that screamed "ladies who lunch." This dress however is splendid, nothing at all like the rest of the line. The dress is black silk chiffon with an intricate star burst pattern sewn onto the outer chiffon layer. The interior of the dress is lined with silk satin, and both layers were cut on the bias. The bias cut gives the material a little wiggle room without having to be made from jersey or anything elastic. Pair this with a nice pair of black heels and a Leiber miniaudiere clutch to complete the black tie look.

Adolfo black silk chiffon evening gown with starburst pattern, c.1970's. Contemporary size 2-small 4.
