Vintage Vuokko "Messu" Print Washed Silk Gown Balloon Sleeves RARE Dress Sz S M 1970s
Stunning " Messu" ( or Mass, Messiah) Vuokko gown of washed, soft silk. Love the stripes, they remind me of a vintage Hudsons bay blanket.
The most remarkable feature of the style is the huge balloon sleeves that can be worn a number of ways. The dress can be worn back to front and vice versa. It is a pullover style, no zippers or buttons. Will fit a size range due to style as well.
Simply gorgeous and one of the rarest styles by Vuokko. I haven't found another like it in all the research I've done.
Vuokko Nurmesniemi was a principal designer for Marimekko and known for bold color and shape combinations, whimsical looks.
