Giorgio Sant'Angelo has a rather large oeuvre of designs ranging from 60s tie-dyed Hippie and Gypsy designs; to 70s Disco ready primary colored chiffon; to 80s Swarovski encrusted body-conscious stretch jersey. Sant'Angelo was an integral part of these three dynamic decades of fashion and this lilac layered crepe jersey day dress below is pure 70s minimalism packaged in a maximum of color. The construction of the dress features two coordinated layers of creped jersey attached at the top of the shoulders. That is the only place where they are connected so it feels like two layered dresses, although the top layer has an asymmetric hem that reveals the bottom layer. It all gets tied in together by the coordinating sash. So layers aren't just for winter!
