1960's Pierre Balmain Black & Metallic Gold Mod Op-Art Wool Knit Dress Ensemble

About

Pierre Balmain worked under Robert Pigiuet, Molyneux, and Lucian Lelong, where he worked closely with Christian Dior. In 1945 is finally opened his own couture house. Balmain created a very sculptural quality which was always allied with a ladylike essence. His garments have a body and a shape of their own. This beautiful black & metallic-gold knit dress ensemble is a perfect example of his genius. The blouse is a flattering wide turtleneck with slight cap-sleeves. The matching skirt is mod op-art at its best; graphic zig-zags in a continuous pattern. The "les tricots" knits were only produced for a small around of time, making this ensemble both collectable and hard-to-find. Balmain's glamorous garments were worn by the likes of Bridget Bardot, Katherine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich. I can totally see a starlet strolling down the street in this show-stopper. Measurements Blouse Bust:38-39 inches Waist:34 inches Total Length:21 inches Skirt Waist:up to 28 inches Hips:up to 42 inches Total Length:42 inches This two-piece Pierre Balmain designer set is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Maxi skirt is fully-lined. This ensemble is over 40 years old and is truly stunning.
