Here's your chance to snag a vintage 90's piece from a talented, but not-so-well-known fashion designer...
Xuly. Bët means "keep your eyes open" in wolof. It is the Parisian fashion house founded in 1991, by Lamine Kouyaté, and now having a resurgence in 2020. This piece is somewhat minimalist from Kouyaté's normal fare, but it screams 90's nonetheless, with its slightly athletic/streetwear vibes. This dress is made from a super stretchy spandex material in black, with a lovely shiny sheen. It features raglan style inset short sleeves and deep v-neckline. The bodice, or upper dress section is meant to be fitted, but once you get past the waist, the skirt section flows down loosely, with an a-line silhouette. All seams have been finished with a special encased overlock stitching, and they are the only decoration present. A bright red Xuly. Bët label is present at the left lower side seam. It reads 'XULY. Bët, Funkin' Fashion, Catalogue XULY. Bët Tous droits réservés'. No other labels present. Overall condition is absolutely mint, with no flaws or signs of wear to note -please review photographs for full details.
