The 1950s goes out in style –
Paris makes official the biggest fashion news in years ! The female form is back in style as Pierre Balmain demonstrates in his 1959 Spring collection. He calls it the envelope silhouette, but you’ll note the waist is in its natural place.
Long sleeves are out of favour or three quarter as seen in the satin cocktail dress below. Mother of pearl buttons for an extra taste of lavishness.
That’s all !
