1970 Pierre Balmain Haute Couture Purple Velvet Graphic Gown & Full-Length Cape



Breathtaking Pierre Balmain Haute-Couture royal purple velvet and black silk 'Copenhague' ensemble dating back to his opulent 1970 collection. This iconic designer created a very sculptural quality which was always allied with a ladylike essence. His garments have a body and a shape of their own. This absolutely stunning formal gown is fashioned from the most luxurious materials and of the finest craftsmanship. The 3-dimensional large scale graphic circles trimmed in rich black velvet create the perfect amount of drama to this timeless showstopper. The matching full length cape is a statement piece in it's own right. The flattering a-line column construction finished this masterpiece off with the wonderful regal vibe. I totally see this iconic ensemble gliding down the red carpet. The pictures say it all. Measurements Bust:34-35 inches Waist:32 inches Hips:up to 42 inches Total Length:56 inches This 1970 Pierre Balmain Haute-Couture 'Copenhague' numbered 153515 ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. The insides are immaculate, fully lined and all hand-finished. Perfectly working back handset metal zipper. Highly wearable museum quality formal set and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
