Everyone has seemed very enchanted with our collection of late 1960s Pierre Balmain Haute Couture evening gowns with outstanding Lesage embroidery. Just two weeks ago, Kristin Davis effortlessly wore a white column Balmain to the White House Correspondent's Dinner and the Balmain requests for similar dresses came fluttering in to Decades. This is our last from the single owner collection of vintage Balmain gowns and it is a spectacular scoop neck and back short sleeve gown with a pink silk waist band and maxi amethyst raw silk skirt. The top portion is intricately enhanced by the master French embroiderer, Lesage. It's a wonderful example of French Haute Couture from the late 1960s and the color combined with the embroidery makes this a particularly special knockout of a gown!
