Back in May, we teased you with the original runway photo of this archival Haute Couture piece from Jean Patou by Christian Lacroix. This piece from Spring/Summer 1987 was never produced and only the original runway sample exist. When Patou's owners sued Lacroix, they claimed his last collection for the House was impossible to sell--here at Decades we know otherwise!

This cream taffeta gown is the most heavenly from the collection. Whether you're in search of a non-traditional wedding gown or you find a pristine Couture creation ideal for a formal soiree, this dress, formally titled "J'y songe," will work wonderfully. The crow featured in the original runway photo above (however, not pictured in our photos) is safely stored for you here in the Decades fashion closet.
