Weekend Eye Candy - Balenciaga 1960

From 1960, the back of a pink shot silk "Amphora" evening gown by Balenciaga. Photo by David Seidner.

The same gown from the front, this time in black from the collection at the V&A museum. Interesting how different it looks from photo to photo, no?

It is absolutely STUNNING. I love it in the pink for sure. What a neat photo, too- I love the way it's sort of looks like it's hovering over the crate.

Had a scarf by Balenciaga years ago. His name sounds so dramatic and romantic!

I'd love to e-mail you a photo taken in the sixties, but I don't know what your e-mail address.

Kathy, it is spelled out to avoid being picked up by spammers. Substitute @ for "at" and . for "dot" and eliminate the spaces. You can also go to my website and email me from there. Thanks!
