For your eyes only

I'm beginning a new category today : "For your eyes only". No prices, no adresses, only photos to focus on a designer, an artist, to illustrate the mood of an era... always with dots...

Here are 2 Arnold Scaasi's polka dot dresses :

On the left, Evening ensemble ,1961. Cream silk satin printed with red and black polka dots, red barathea.
On the right, the matched dress and coat, a 1957 ensemble.

Plunging necklines and bell-shaped skirts were the signature of Arnold Scaasi, american "couturier", born in Canada. He was noted for its large patterns, glamorous evening wear and cocktail dresses.
