What a gorgeous and romantic full length maxi dress from Hanae Mori. The colors are especially wonderful and give it a fairy tale, ethereal feel. A soft, lavender backdrop has pretty little bouquets of flowers screened the almost weightless chiffon. This combination of color and fabric is magical. It is cut with an elastic through the waist making it very easy and comfortable to wear. To cover that and add more shape it has a long matching fabric tie belt allowing you to give it even more shape if you wish. The bodice has a loose and easy cut and each sleeve is quite full above its cuffed wrist. The skirt cascades to the floor in a cascade of chiffon whose lightness allows for lots of floating and swirling movement. I can imagine this with sandals for day and then stacked heel at night. I am such a huge Hanae Mori fan and this particular dress is sublime. It really feels of this season and so fresh and modern still that it is easy to imagine slipping it on and going out the same day it arrives at your door. Excellent condition.
The dress is fully lined through the bodice and skirt in a pastel lavender silky crepe chiffon and closes at the back with hidden hook & eye above the elastic at the waist. It has its original fabric belt. Each cuff has a fabric covered snap to close. The elastic waist allows for a bit greater range of size.
