Jean Colonna SS1998 reversed geometric floral print satin slip dress


Satin slip dress by french designer jean colonna (from spring summer 1998), with spaghetti-ish straps, faintly curved (v-neck-y) neckline, and shaped waist. The reverse side of the floral-and-geometric-printed fabric (tags cut, but likely polyester) has been used on the outside, with the result that the print appears dull and muted on the outside and shiny-sheeny on the inside (see pictures). In this way the fabric has been 'reversed'.

Picture 10 shows a skirt in the same fabric on the SS1998 runway.
