When you deal in vintage there is often a moment when you hold a dress in your hands and wonder about its life. Where has it gone? What adventures has it had? Has it traveled the world? Gone to fabulous parties, been a part of a seduction or mad affair? I would like to think that this lovely little vintage Oscar de la Renta has stood on a balcony in the sunshine before. Perhaps caught on the film of a tourist as they looked up at the lovely woman wearing it like Samantha does here in Milan. Perhaps in the past it was in Paris, or a balcony in New York, but it certainly must have had a glamorous life before - and if not, it certainly can lay claim to one now. And who knows where it will travel with its next owner ....
