This is a terrific 1980's vintage silk dress from Japanese designer Hanae Mori. The print is red and black with images of sun/starbursts and abstract people dancing, that looks like Matisse cutouts!
The dress has side slit pockets, 2 decorative bodice pockets, buttons up the front that reflect the starburst theme and it is in excellent condition.. Hanae Mori is know for her exceptional prints and this one is an iconic example of her aesthetic.
The dress has shoulder pads and is labeled a size 16, but please remember that vintage sizes, as well as various modern day manufacturer sizes, can be very different, so please use the measurements as a guide. We estimate this would best fit a modern size L/XL.
SHOULDERS from seam to seam across the back: 16"
