Vintage 80's Concetta Rafanello For St Martin Sequin Shirt Top 1985 Xs S M L:
Super rare find!!! This is an amazing sequin top, from Concetta Rafanello for St. Martin. These sequined shirts are highly sought after, and very hard to find. Should be in a museum!
Out-of-this-world vintage CONCETTA RAFANELLO, for St. Martin, v neck sequin top! Incredible amount of detail, with thousands of hand-sewn sequins, beads throughout the front, back, and sleeves! Batwing short sleeves add to the Avant Garde style of this piece of art. Copyrighted in 1985 (as seen on the label). Can easily go from day to night. Perfect with jeans, trousers, or a skirt. Will fit many sizes (and look good on all), due to the style of the shirt. Approximately Size Small - Large
Approximate Measurements-taken flat- very hard to measure because of the cut of the shirt- there is no definite shoulder seam for example:
23.5" long from top of shoulder to waistband24" underarm to underarm19" shoulder to shoulder11.5"across waist completely not stretched5.5" sleeve opening
This can fit an XS-Medium- Large depending on how you want it to fit.In good vintage sequin condition. Missing a few beads at the back of the neck and one vertical row of sequins in the front as seen in photos with the pencil pointing to the area. Please refer to the pictures and zoom in. The baguette beads on the shoulder epaulettes are perfect and so iconic. Try to zoom in on the top of the epaulette- it is so nicely done. The only other flaw is at the waist band, see photos, but it is on the part that tucks under the elastic so it is not visible while being worn- you can't even see it in the photos of me wearing it. It is just the fabric that needs a few stitches- the beads are fine. By the way, I am 5'7" and usually wear a women's 8 and this is how it fits me.This is priced to reflect these minor defects. Excellent condition ones, when found, go for around $650.
The sequins are champagne beige. The baguette beads are white and silver.This top belonged to my mother and she treasured it, but seldom wore it which is probably why it is in such good vintage condition. When she did wear it, it was to the elegant 1980's night clubs, yacht clubs and swanky country clubs in Palm Beach Florida, so it has a posh history. She was 5'2" and it fit her perfectly.
