Papéll Silk Taxicab Dress M/L


This flowy silk dress is essentially an homage to the yellow checker cabs of the past, or also just a really cool dress! Bold yellow silk jacquard frock has black & white checkerboard squares throughout the strong shoulder silhouette, and an abstract shiny tonal pattern within. The fabric is rich and very, very nice. Nice detailing, including puffed sleeves with little banded buttoned cuffs and a stretchy waist with tacked pleating around the high hip leading to an ultra full swingy hemline. Pair with a black leather belt and you're good to go. Works worn slightly oversized too. By label Adrianna Papéll, made in Korea, circa 1980s.
