1960s AVERARDO BESSI drippy sleeves dress small | new summer
Iconic Averardo Bessi dress! The silk jersey has the best print...it is large scale flowers and geometric print. Bessi signature logo throughout. Huge, sheer drippy angel sleeves. Comes with rope belt with beaded tassels. Back metal zip. Unlined. Made in Italy.
Bessi was launched in 1950 but it was not until 1968 that it started producing the signed, self created printed pieces. Bessi dresses are often on par with Pucci and Leonard, especially the ones from the late sixties to mid seventies.
