The Perfect Summer Dress Gets All Sproused Up

With so much recent attention being paid to the iconic pop-inspired designs of legendary American designer STEPHEN SPROUSE, we couldn't think of a sweeter dress that highlights his career better than this highly collectible & rare silk tube dress that is printed with an ode to another pop master, the great Andy Warhol. It happens to be a seductively fitted matte silk satin tube dress that has a detachable printed silk chiffon train done up in explosive pop colors. This train can be attached to either the front or the back of the dress with signature Sprouse velcro straps that lie on each side of the bust. It was produced in 1997 for Sprouse's fifth & final comeback show with exclusive permission from the Warhol Foundation and boast's Warhol's infamous "Admit One" ticket print. What's even more remarkable is the fact that this piece proves how far ahead of his time Sprouse was when you think of how Warhol prints have been used for everything in fashion by now from the disparate likes of everyone from Levi's to Barbie 10 years after the production of this dress. It also happens to have a hidden side zip and hidden boning on the each side of the bust.
