We didn't get enough of the historic Jean Patou Haute Couture by Christian Lacroix archival dresses from Spring/Summer 1987 up on the blog because you guys just bought them from the runway photos! We appreciate you making our lives easier, but we do still have a few to post that haven't sold sight unseen, such as, this butter yellow taffeta pouf dress known as "Hawaii" aka Exit 36. As you know, the collection was never produced because Lacroix left Patou for his eponymous-house with backing by LVMH. Patou sued Lacroix, cancelled the collection, archived the samples, and CL took the pouf with him which became iconic at the House of Lacroix. Own an original pouf and a one of a kind example of Haute Couture!
