About

The Bettina blouse, the Shirt dress, the Sack dress—Hubert de Givenchy, like his mentor and friend Cristóbal Balenciaga, was a master at playing with volume to achieve beauty in the clothes he created. This Nouvelle Boutique top by the French designer reflects that mastery, while exploring dimensionality, too. The blouse is cut from black silk organza, a semi-sheer fabric that holds up against the body and lends form where it might not naturally exist. In this piece, that form is most noticeable in the absolutely stunning puffed sleeves that drape dramatically before being gathered into a wide cuff. It is also apparent in the bodice, with its softly shaped waistline created by an interior grosgrain ribbon belt and back darts. The silhouette provides an elegant backdrop for the surface details that are truly what makes this piece exceptional. The organza is flocked with large tonal polka dots. Over this are randomly applied shiny round paillettes in brilliant shades of red, orange, yellow, purple, magenta, white, blue and turquoise. The effect is one of depth, whimsy and artistry. If you want a top that speaks to individual style, this is the one for you.

This vintage Givenchy Nouvelle Boutique blouse is in excellent condition. It is made in a semi-sheer black silk organza. The organza is flocked with tonal polka dots and then embellished with shiny round paillettes in brilliant shades of red, orange, yellow, purple, magenta, while, blue and turquoise. The top has hidden snap closures to fasten the front, which overlaps below the notched collar. Darts at the back lend it a gently fitted waistline, as does the grosgrain ribbon belt on the interior that secures with a hook-and-eye closure. The shirt has voluminous puffed sleeves that gather into wide cuffs. Each cuff is fitted with a geometric black button. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
