Beautiful, and unusual, vintage Geoffrey Beene fire red persimmon avant garde midi skirt, with chunky double-headed asymmetric zipper.

The midi skirt is making a big comeback this season, and you'd be hard-pressed to beat one as great as this, by one of the greatest designers of the Twentieth Century. What's more, you can zip the bottom zipper up to show as much leg (and thigh) as you want to, or all the way down and show none.

Beautifully finished, with all interior seams bound, and long dyed-to-match interior silken loops from which to hang it on a hanger. The wool is lightweight and finely woven - a top quality textile, as you'd expect from Beene.

Label: Geoffrey Beene
Era: Late 1980s to early 1990s
Color/s: Fiery red orange or deep persimmon
Fabric: Finely woven lightweight wool
Fastenings: Large chunky zipper across front

The Condition: Immaculate and well preserved. It has three small frays on the very bottom of the back hem, which I almost missed, and did miss when I bought it (in other words, unobtrusive - I look carefully). No other flaws.

The Shipping: Delivered by trial by fire, I mean Priority mail, within the U.S.; International First Class to Canada, and International First Class to Everywhere Else.

Yoohoo, International buyers! Your country may charge you customs fees on your purchase, which you're responsible for paying. Just so you know ahead of time and aren't unpleasantly surprised :)
