PIERRE BALMAIN Houndstooth Strapless Cocktail Dress


There are several, stunning details to this BALMAIN cocktail dress. The lightweight fabric is covered in a brown on brown houndstooth print; a shiny brown and a dull brown intersect to create the faint print. The bodice is made of two, overlapping sides. Boning in the upper chest helps maintain the shape and the flap detail of the neckline. The sides are secured together with a series of staggered, double breasted, button closures. A single button closure sits right at the base of the bodice, accenting the v shape. The skirt extends out from the bottom of the bodice. The skirt features extra fabric, creating a full effect. The back side of the dress is even more intricate. The back side features a plunging back. Two, 54" long panels of fabric are attached to either hip. These panels can be tied on the back side, creating a full bow. They can also be tied to one's desired effect. Chic and unique, this BALMAIN creation has it all. PIERRE BALMAIN BOUTIQUE Label Present. Excellent Condition.
