Vintage, Hoffmann Cocktail, size 10, pale pink long dress

£45.00

Product description

This is a beautiful pale pink evening gown from Hoffman Cocktail, a garment made in West Germany, probably in the late 70's/early 80's.

This diaphanous dress has a pale pink sheer outer, with delicate drape, and a toning coloured under slip (which itself is lined) with thin straps, so the sleeves are sheer. The slip has a zip fastening down the back, the outer fastens with buttons to the waist. The main fabric has a high round neck and wide short sleeves which are batwing and open from shoulder to waist. The panels down the centre of the front and back of the bodice are layered pieces decorated with sparkling circles giving the impression of sequins. The dress has a waistband (no belt, although thin belt loops remain). The skirt is cut in vertical panels edged with silver ribbon and each is curved at the end creating a scalloped hem.

This fabulous dress is one which has timeless class, suitable as evening wear today, with or without a nod to its previous life. It is a stunning vintage piece.
