Balmain Haute Couture Lesage Embellished Dress or Jacket by Oscar de la Renta

About

Astonishing Haute Couture gold embellished long jacket or mini dress from Pierre Balmain. Numbered , from Fall 1998, this was designed by Oscar de la Renta, the beadwork executed by the house of Lesage. The hand embellished beadwork must have taken over 1000 hours by "les petite mains" and is museum worthy, truly breathtaking. Lined in green silk. It has tiny embroidered buttons on the cuffs and down the front , but closes with tiny hook and eye closures, the buttons are only decorative. This was made to measure for the original owner, one of San Francisco's grandest doyennes, so please check the measurements. I would estimate it a size Small. Bust 36" Waist 30" Hips 38" Length 32" In excellent condition

About Oscar De La Renta (Manufacturer)

    Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stdibs in a 2010 profile.

    And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

    A perennial favorite on 1stdibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
