A 'Barbarella' chain-linked plastic mini-dress, 1969 - stamped
'Barbarella!' to discs, formed from plastic discs in two shades
of purple, with midriff-exposing circles to the waistline (perfect for showing off a belly ring!) The vendor recalls the original owner bought this dress in the Netherlands in 1969 and wore it to parties, styled with a blouse underneath. The American science fiction film 'Barbarella' was released in October 1968 and starred Jane Fonda as the scantily-clad space traveller of the same name. The futuristic costumes featured in the film - and the work of Paco Rabanne - were the likely inspirations for this piece.
