A Perfect Balenciaga Dress

We mentioned yesterday that we were taking a last look at the final sale at Bergdorf Goodman (still a few good things to be found) and also looking at the pre fall collections. We do like to wear a mix of vintage and new. The new Margiela slightly oversize fur bolero will look great with a vintage Ossie Clark day dress... hmmm....

We also like pieces that can transition from the season to season. And sometimes, when you buy something, it can be absolute torture to have to wait a month or so for that first cool day to happily slip on a piece from your new wardrobe! That is why we love something that you can start to wear now and then come Fall add tights and a cardigan.

We also love Balenciaga. Cristobal Balenciaga. His work has inspired countless designers: Hubert de Givenchy, André Courreges, Nicolas Ghesquiere and many more. We also love in particular the rigorously designed pieces. That is one of the reasons we were very excited to have recently acquired this beautiful brown 1960s Balenciaga dress with a hint of heather faintly woven into the light nubby fabric. It is simple and pure. It is classic and timeless and beautiful. It is a great transitional piece - you won't have to wait to wear it! It is the perfect dress for a meeting, a dinner, a cocktail party. It is also a true investment piece for the vintage collector.

1960s Balenciaga brown dress. Size 8.
