This whimsical, silk printed sleeveless dress with a tie neck, so reminiscent of a 1920's silhouette, had been designed by Jane Mayle. Jane Mayle is a British ex-model who had founded her company in 1999 and opened her upscale boutique on Elizabeth Street in New York City at the same time. It had been a Nolita (North of Little Italy) hot spot for many years until it had closed in 2008. Jane Mayle is well known for her fabulous ready-to-wear clothing, unusual prints, tie neck blouses and dresses, and her designs with a retro feel. This dress has a wonderful brown and black print against a pale green silk background. This dress is sleeveless with a side zipper for closure, has an elongated dropped waist, and a wonderful pleated asymmetrical hem line. It is marked a Size 2 and is in excellent vintage condition.
