Iconic 1960's Pierre Balmain Couture Silk Maxi Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

From the French Master Pierre Balmain is an amazing dress comprised of gradiated sizes of red silk velvet cut out bottom heavy circles each sewn by hand onto heavy structured mesh (almost a horse hair feeling). Front and back yokes are solid red silk velvet as are the hem and the end of the bell 3/4 length silk gazar sleeves. The body of the dress is an A line shape from the base of the yoke to the hem. The yokes are lined in red silk, then muted gold throughout the body of the dress until the last 3 inches at the hem where black silk is attached by hand. A stunning amount of hand work throughout the dress including the back zipper. Evidence of it's couture status.
Excellent condition, amazingly, appears unworn.
