HERMÈS 1960s 1970s Vintage Printed Silk Twill Maxi Evening Dress w/ Original Belt Size M-L

This rare and wonderful vintage Hermès maxi dress from the 1960s or 1970s is crafted from the typical first-class quality silk twill with an amazing print in shades of yellow, green and orange against a cream white background.

The sleeveless dress features a round neckline and a slightly flared maxi skirt with side slits and solid cream white edges with neat decorative stitching. It comes with its original belt that closes with a gold-tone metal buckle and may be worn with or without. The dress closes with a hand-set side zipper and features many intriguing hand-crafted details such as three (!) internal bra strap keepers per side and masterly hand-set lining. Please have a look at the detail pictures to get an impression of this amazing quality in craftsmanship. 100% silk, fully lined. Made in France. An exceptional piece.

CONDITION
Excellent, very fresh, only the most minimal signs of wear. Appears hardly worn and very well kept. There are a few loose stitches to the lining which we have decided to leave as is (see detail pictures). Maybe the slightest discolouration or grubbiness to the center front of the neckline (see detail pictures), barely there and only mentioned for accuracy.
