Layers Of Varying Shades Of Pink Silk And Lace In Addition To Its Long Silk Train Make This A Truly Timeless And Wearable Find!Balmain's Demure Style -- Sophisticated, Elegant, Refined + Tasteful -- Earned Him A Devout Clientele. His Exploration Of Fabrics, Forms And Colors While Staying True To His Fashion Ideal Earned Him A Spot In The Chambre Syndicale De La Haute Couture And Secured Him An Eternal Place In Fashion History.It Is Extremely Rare To Find This Particular New York/paris Label. After Traveling Extensively And Realizing The Potential Of An International Market, Balmain Opened His First Us Boutique In New York City In 1949. There, Ready To Wear Dresses Were Made In France Yet Marketed To The American Audience With Many Couture (Or Demi-Couture) Details. Sadly, While Extremely Successful, The Short Lived Boutique Was To Close In 1953. We Were Told By The Original Owner That This Dress Purchased In The Nyc Boutique For Her Debut In 1952.The Gown Itself Features A Strapless Sweetheart Neckline With Scalloped Edges And Gathered "modesty" Panel In The Bust With Slinky Fitted Skirt And Flared Mermaid Hem. Made Entirely From Pale Blush Colored Lace With Rose Colored Backing And Pale Petal Pink Attached Silk Train. The Attached Gathered Sash Leads To A Magnanimous Cascading Silk Train That Drags The Ground. The Train Also Has A Small Finger Strap Hidden Beneath So That It Can Be Carried When Walking (Or More Importantly, Dancing). Also Includes The Matching Leather Backed, Lace Belt And Bolero. ConditionVery Very Good, Wearable Vintage Condition. Please See The Detailed Condition Reports Below. In Addition, We Do Have Photos Of Everything Mentioned Below And Are Happy To Share Them. For Space Reasons, We Did Not Include Them In The Listing. Please Contact Us Before Purchasing So That We Can Share Them With You. We Did Recently Have This Dress Cleaned At The Esteemed Madame Paulette In Nyc.DressThe Dress Does Have A Few Very Small Stains In The Lace That Are Completely Lost When Being Worn In Addition To Some General Scuffing/dirt On The Train From Dragging The Floor, As Is Common With Any Similar Piece. BoleroThere Is A Small Amount Of Silk Lining Peeling Away Inside The Neckline Of The Bolero (Not Visible From The Outside) BeltThe Belt Sadly, Is The One Piece With Real Problems. The Leather Backing Is Cracked In Many Places. In Addition, The Lace-Covered Buckle Is Losing Much Of Its Lace.SizeBest Fits Size SmallMeasurementsBust: 34"Waist: 26"Hips: 37"Total Length: 53.5" Front 57" BackTrain Length: 63" From Back

  • Pre-owned 1970's Emilio Pucci Emerald-Green Print Silk Batwing-Sleeves Maxi Dress Gown
    SOLD OUT: More info
    Day Dresses. From our unique collection of Day Dresses, this piece is offered for sale online by Timeless Vixen. Global shipping is available. Emilio Pucci was the king of textile innovative and beautiful prints during the 1960's and 1970's. His designs revolutionized the world of fashion and he developed a fan following that was almost unheard of at the time. Today, original Pucci prints from the beginning of his career are hard-to-find and highly collectible. This stunning "flower & foliage" print gown in emerald green on ivory silk-chiffon is a perfect example of his genius. I love the blouson bodice with short batwing sleeves and low-cut plunge scoopneck. The flattering nipped high-waist maxi skirt finishes this garment off with the perfect "bohemian chic" vibe.

  • Preowned A/w 1980 Haute Couture Christian Dior Gown
    More info
    Whenever We Have True Haute Couture In The Shop We Are All Ecstatic And For Good Reason. Haute Couture Is The Highest Art Form In The World Of Fashion And Each Piece Is Very Special, Important And Is Perhaps The Holy Grail For Any Vintage Lover Or Collector. This Two Piece Ensemble Is From The Autumn - Winter 1980 Haute Couture Collection. The Inner Dress Is A Fine, Almost Weightless Silk Chiffon With A Simple Double Layer Of Silk Chiffon Bodice That Skims Over The Torso. The Waist Is Left A Touch Wide For Comfort. The Skirt Is Extraordinary Three Layers Of Silk Lie Atop Each Other And The Exterior Layer Is Knife Pleated In Teeny 1/8Th Of An Inch Pleats. The Edges Are Finished With Tiny Hand Stitches And All The Interior Work Is By Hand. Over This Is A Loose Tunic Feel Top Made Of Silk With Dots Of Silk Velvet Fused To The Base Fabric. The Sleeves Are Cut Wide And I Love How The Back And Front Dip Into V's That Pick Up The Same Shaped Neckline Detail Down The Front. The Neck Is High And It Ties With A Long Attached Tie. I Have Tied It At The Back But You Could Also Create Shape And Volume At The Front. The Versatility Of The Two Pieces Is Wonderful - You Can Wear Them As Intended And Together Or Break Them Up - The Tunic Would Look As Equally Chic Over A Slim Black Trouser. I Almost Hesitate To List This As It Is A Piece That Will Only Continue To Climb In Value As The Years Go By. With Couture Gowns Well Over The 6 Figure Mark This Is A Beautiful And Early Example Of Where Fashion Went Forward Into The Eighties And Also A Sound Investment Piece. Excellent, Museum Quality ConditionThe Inner Dress Is Composed Of Two Layers Pieces And Hand Sewn Together Through The Bodice And Three Silk Layers Through The Skirt.it Closes With A Hand Set Side Zipper With Hidden Snaps To Cover The Fabric Over The Zipper Below The Waist. There Is A Button At The Back Of The Neck. There Is An Inner Waist Stay, The Tunic Slips On The Wear With Three Hook & Eye At The Back Of The Neck. Lightly Padded Shoulders Original To The Ensemble.Note That The Color Is Perhaps A Touch Deeper In Tone Then What It Has Photoed As But Otherwise A Very True Representation.Photographed On Michelle Monaghan For Rhapsody Magazine's September 2014 Issue!TunicSleeves: 23"Shoulders: 15.5"Bust: To 25" Flat Across From Side Seam To Side SeamWaist: OpenHips: OpenLength: 39" From Neck To Longest Point Of HemUnder DressBust: 19" Flat Across From Side Seam To Side SeamWaist: 14" Flat Across From Side Seam To Side SeamHips: 19" Flat Across From Side Seam To Side SeamBodice: 15" From Top Of Bodice To WaistSkirt: 42" From Waist To HemModern Sizing Equivalent: Sml-MedThis Garment Has Been Professionally Cleaned, Pressed And Is Odor Free.
