Couture Vintage 1971 John Kloss Beaded Black Swan Loungewear Dress

Regular price $ 528.00 Save $ -528.00

This dress is so spectacular its twin sister can be found in The Metropolitan Museum of Art! It also was featured in the December 1971 issue of Vogue Magazine.

Designed by two-time Coty Award winner, John Kloss, this wonderful frock is made of 85% arnel triacetate (a rayon/polyester blend) and 15% nylon and feels like a soft velour.

The pièce de résistance, however, is the spectacular black and white glass beaded swan centerpiece that splits following the lines of the deep V neckline. 

Dress has hidden side pockets and fastens up the front from the waist up with hook and eyes. 

Kloss was well known for designing sophisticated, yet seductive free-flowing casual wear that could transition from the boudoir to a night out on the town, and this piece is a prime example of his fashion genius. It is easy to see why he was a favorite among the likes of Anne Bancroft and Liza Minnelli. 

Unfortunately, Kloss' career was cut short with his death at age 49, making his pieces highly sought after and collectible.
