Tonight there is a secret screening of Versailles '73 in Los Angeles. Although the film had its debut screening during the Cannes Film Festival in May, this time around a lot of my friends and peers will be listening to me narrate the film. Let's hope people find my voice mellifluous and not dissonant. I keep thinking about all the designers who were part of the famous fashion revolution. I actually want to curate a trunk show of all the Versailles 73 designers: then and now. Here is a great "then" piece by Bill Blass. Wine printed python chiffon is enhanced with striped of gold paisley-laced thread. The skirt is a handkerchief hem which yesterday's birthday boy, Jarred, calls "peasant." You will have to email him at Jarred@decadesinc.com to ask him personally what is peasant-y about said Blass. I think of it as very luxurious: sensual python printed chiffon; glitzy paisley metallic stripes; flirty skirt. Nan Kempner at her finest? With fall just around the corner, I actually can see Jarred's point. Perhaps this dress could be worn with suede boots and a great Ulyana Sergeenko coat?
Bill Blass wine snake skin print with metallic paisley long sleeve dress, c.1970's. Modern size 6 SOLD
