Cristóbal Balenciaga Day Dresses. From our unique collection of Day Dresses, this piece is offered for sale online by WilliamVintage. Global shipping is available. This incredibly chic haute couture day dress by Balenciaga is the ideal choice for a summer event. Constructed from turquoise green silk with a watercolour floral motif within the fabric, the dress features a fabric-matched belt at the waist and is sold with the original matching sling-back heels. The full skirt, kicking out from the waist, creates a highly flattering silhouette, and is a wonderful example of Balenciaga’s work during the early 1960s. Cristobal Balenciaga was the man known as ‘the couturier’s couturier’ and referred to by Coco Chanel as simply ‘the Master’. His understanding of fabric, shape and the construction of clothing was without equal and this stunning dress is a superb example of Balenciaga when it was Signor Balenciaga himself at the helm.
