In Our Closet: 1960s Optical Dress

We love this 1960’s silk optical dress. It was handmade here in Florence and it is part of the wardrobe of an aristocratic Florentine woman.

The dress reflects the spirit of optical art and it seems to be painted by hand.

Optical art inspired fashion designers, who reproduced it, creating amazing new patterns for their clothes. Art and fashion were melted together to create a unique and timeless works of art.imageimage
