About

A fabulous choice for a special occasion or red carpet event, this vibrant Balmain dress will certainly standout for all of the right reasons! Constructed from layers of red silk chiffon, the elegant column silhouette has high neck with a tie detail to the side. The top layer of chiffon has an a-symmetric cut which gives a softly pleated effect down one side of the dress.

Pierre Balmain and the house of Balmain were one of the greatest voices in the haute couture world of Paris in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. A friend and contemporary of Dior, Balmain reached superstar status in the 1950s with his ‘Jolie Madame’ and a strong, bold use of shape and colour and his haute couture pieces from the 1950s and 1960s are firm favourites at WilliamVintage.
