North Beach Leather Zip Dress S/M


Rare and avant garde vintage 80s leather funnel neck dress from designer Michael Hoban for his label North Beach Leather. A zipper starting at the neck fully unzips the entire left dolman sleeve, and the supple, lightweight (almost paper thin) leather drapes beautifully on the body. An optional side slit unzips at the knee for some extra heat!

Hoban revolutionized leatherwork in fashion from the 60s - 80s with his counterculture inspired designs worn by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Diana Ross, Elvis and so many more icons. This long sleeve black shift dress is a chance to take home a piece of that legend!
