The Divine

Balenciaga is a legend. Famously, when he retired, Mona von Bismarck retreated to her bedroom and would not come out for days. We can imagine how she felt and love the drama of the countess closing herself in her bedroom in Capri.

RARE is very excited to have and to hold this nothing less than spectacular 1950s silk coat by Balenciaga. This coat still radiates a powerful modernity and its simplicity is sublime. The volume, the cut, the fabric are all Cristobal Balenciaga. This coat would look amazing with literally anything and we can definitely see it with a pair of signature skinny pants from the current artistic director of the House of Balenciaga, Nicholas Ghesquiere. SOLD
