Paul Daunay Haute Couture Fall Daytime Ensemble, circa 1952-57

About

Exquisite and extremely rare Paul Daunay haute couture fall daytime ensemble, circa 1952-57. Brown and ivory wool in art deco style print throughout. The ensemble includes a tailored coat with hidden button closures, fitted sleeves and turn-over collar, lined in brown silk. Silk dress with high neckline, slightly puffed shoulders, matching waist belt with large tassels and drop waist skirt in matching print. This ensemble is highly constructed and is a great example of the genius designs of 1950s haute couture. Paul Daunay garments are very rare and have only been seen once in the Palais Galliera's Fifties fashion exhibition, shown alongside masters such as Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga.
