Pierre Balmain Haute Couture 1950s Lace Dress and Jacket with Mink Collar

About

This is a stunning dress and bolero jacket set from the 1950s. Both pieces are made with black lace over silk chiffon lined in cream silk taffeta. The dress has an iconic halter sweetheart neckline with pleated and ruched chiffon over the bust. A semi-detached corselet on the inside fastens with hooks and eyes to protect the zipper and take pressure off the more delicate garment seams, simultaneously reinforcing the amazing hourglass figure. The waist bust proportions are extreme and the dress did not close entirely on our dress form as seen in the photos, please keep this in mind be it for wear or display. Garter clips extend from the bottom of the corselet to secure one's stockings. The matching jacket extends to rib level, and has a high-necked collar of beautiful cream mink fur, pristine. The inside of the jacket is lined in silk organza, revealing the couture method of construction. These pieces are incredibly beautiful, and remain both classic and eminently stylish today. There are few obvious seams, the waist and the underarms. All the construction of the ensemble has been done through very fine and delicate hand piecing of the lace, there are no straight seams up the skirt or bodice, nor at the armholes or shoulders of the jacket. Lastly and most special, the ensemble includes the original self fabric belt. Absolute 1950s Haute Couture perfection with little to no wear.
