All Summer Long

We heard a great story about Pauline Trigere from one of our clients who had a large collection of Trigere: She was very excited to be seated next to Miss Trigere at a lunch and happily told her how much she liked her clothing and how extensive her collection was. Pauline Trigere simply looked at her and said, "then why aren't you wearing any?" and turned away.

She may not have had a warm and fuzzy personality but her clothes were timeless and elegant. Although she was born in France, she moved to new York in 1937 and became a symbol of the American fashion industry. RARE vintage has a focus on European designers but it is always a pleasure when we can find you a great piece of American fashion history right here in New York, the fashion capital of the United States!

We love this 1970s strapless colorful pink flower print Pauline Trigere dress for summer at home entertaining, for cocktails on the beach, for just about anything really. It is fun, effortless, comfortable and very sophisticated. Throw on a great pair of flat sandals, pull your hair in a ponytail, a pink lipstick and you are good to go.
