This flamboyant Roberto Cavalli dress dates back to the late 2000s. Many signatures of Y2K fashion and of this collectable brand are present; animal prints, handkerchief hemlines, metallic threads and contrasting prints. Cut from sheer silk-chiffon with glittering gold thread, clashing patterns of floral, Aztec-inspired and leopard prints abound. The extreme handkerchief hem falls from a mini-dress to floor-sweeping length, swirling around the wearer as they walk. This gown has spaghetti straps and one theatrical ruffled shoulder with cut-out detailing at the rear.

Offered in excellent vintage condition, this stunning dress has no flaws of any note. The composition label states that this piece is 91% Silk, 9% Polyester. Made in Italy and a size Italian 40, our model is a UK 6-8, 5' 4" or 163 cm and this had room to spare so the dress may suit a size up too.
