A Fine and Important Roberto Capucci Ballgown

Roberto Capucci opened his Paris atelier on 4, Rue Cambon in the Sixties. He worked with an incredible team: La premiere was Mme. Germaine who had been with Christian Dior, Mme. Marguerite who had worked on the New Look collection with Dior and the press office was run by Mme. Josette, who had been secretary to the writer Colette. His collections were enthusiastically received by the notoriously exclusive and closed world of haute couture in Paris.

Here is an inky midnight blue silk satin ballgown. Strapless and cut close to the body it defines the waist before falling into an extremely full skirt, brilliantly constructed. The simplicity of the dress combined with geometrical form - a trademark of Capucci's work - makes it like a soft sculpture.

It is also a completely unique gown that on the body makes you feel completely serene, darkly romantic and beautiful.
