Balmain Haute Couture Runway Worn Coat & Dress

My client, an International Socialite, is a regular attendee at the Haute Couture fashion shows in Paris and Milan. As a valued customer, and friend of the designers, she has backstage access to purchase the clothing and accessories the minute that they leave the Haute Couture runway.

Designed by Oscar de la Renta when he was the head of Balmain Haute Couture this natural colored canvas coat is cut full in a swing style and accented with bamboo buttons. There are two pockets, high slits on both sides and a band collar. The raw silk dress has a square neckline and narrow straps in plain raw silk. The body of the dress is made from a ribbed raw silk in the same color. A zipper is concealed on the left side of center back. It is fully lined in ivory silk with Haute Couture hand finishing. Both pieces are in excellent condition. The Haute Couture runway label is sewn on to the coat.
