Limited edition of 27 + 3 AP
This spectacular black sheath dinner dress was featured in Harper’s Bazaar in March 1938 and is typical of the subtly luxurious style that Mainbocher became famous for. The stark silhouette is softened by a headdress with ostrich feather fringe and ostrich muff, and the dress is slit to reveal the leg beneath.
