French designer France Andrevie two piece black dress with oversized blouse top and paneled wrap skirt. The top is covered in large velvet polka dots, and was purchased in a much smaller size than the skirt because of the oversized fit!
Andrevie created an incredible top with extra large sleeves and one front pocket. It buttons down the front, with a mandarin collar that can be buttoned closed with the two buttons, or worn open. The skirt sits at the natural waist, about where the sleeve underarm starts! The wrap skirt ties at the side, and is made of multiple overlapping panels. The panels alternate between velvet polka dots and thin velvet stripes!
This incredible and rare piece is documented from the Fall/Winter 1982 collection, we have documentation of this exact piece from L'Officiel (see the third photo), as well as runway show shots with colorful pantsuits and other items with this same velvet dot/stripe combination!
Top is marked as a 36, skirt is a 40. Fits like a US size 8/10, and is very adjustable with the fit because of the oversized blouse and the wrap skirt!
