As you already know we love stripes. This beautiful light and airy dress is a creation of Angelo Tarlazzi when he was Artistic Director at Jean Patou in the seventies. Angelo Tarlazzi became famous for his "kerchief" dresses, made of silk scarfs draped and knotted around the body in the form of a simple pareo. A bit of that technique can be seen in this dress, the tie in the back, the bias cut of two panels to create the skirt and the lightness when it moves. It is the perfect dress to take to an island, you can stroll in it during the day and go dancing at night.....tying or untying the knot.
