Hanae Mori Jumpsuit, 1967

I usually associate designer Hanae Mori with beautiful prints, and butterflies were a favorite design element of hers, but this over-the-top jumpsuit from 1967 is quite a bit wilder than anything I've seen of hers from this era.  Made of silk crepe, I am sure the workmanship on this was simply superb.  The bracelets are by New York jeweler Charles Elkaim.
