About

This rare example of Lucien Lelong channels Art Deco glamour perfectly. Lelong was not only a leading couturier of the 1930s but also the head of the Haute Couture Syndicate and the man who discovered Balmain and Dior. Constructed in black silk crepe and embroidered with over 10,000 black glass bugle beads, with a central line of cabochon and faceted Swarovski crystals running from neckline to hem, this exceptional dress is as relevant and chic today as it was 80 years ago.
