España dress by Sybilla, in silk crepe, 1996.
Evening dress in black, silk crepe. Long, fitted bodice with a round neckline at front and back. Nylon threads on the bust join the different geometric pieces that make up the front, with a Latin cross at the centre. The lining is in the same fabric as the dress, ensuring a perfect fall.
"The España dress is from a period in which the designer had reached personal and creative maturity; it’s a turning-point in her career (...). The line of the dress, aligned with the reining minimalism of the mid-nineties, is sober and pure. The originality of its design is focused on the front, more precisely the bodice, made up of rounded, cut-out shapes, joined by invisible nylon threads to form a sort of edge-less mosaic".
