Gres is the new black
Last night was the opening of the really beautiful Madame Gres exhibit at the Museum of FIT. There are stunning hand pleated goddess gowns and a particular favorite was the 1972 navy silk jersey dress that had belonged to Mica Ertegun. We definitely recommend a trip to FIT and the accompanying book to the exhibit. We also recommend another 1970s Madame Gres dress that we have at RARE vintage. The deceptively simple sheath is a pristine example of Gres' technique and imagination. Made of bands of heavy crepe pieced together and ending in a line of cutouts baring the side of the body. Very sexy. Very Gres. Very RARE. Size 4/6.
