pauline trigere

1960s Metallic Lace Pauline Trigere Gown

The first thing that strikes you when you pick this up is that it is virtually weightless. The lace is fine and light and it is backed in a nude silk chiffon. This allows for that feeling of lightness and once on it is heavenly to wear. I love how she has used color to define the dress. The silver lace covers the bodice and where it meets the metallic blue lace it creates its own shape and pattern. The skirt is a simple A-line and silver medallions adorn its surface. The sleeves are not lined so you get the tiniest glimpse of skin through the lace and I love how they end in that same blue. It is elegant and regal and the effect of the silver in the light cannot be conveyed by the photographs! Its amazing in person!

Fully lined in a nude silk chiffon except for the sleeves. It closes with a back painted metal and nylon zipper and then snaps over that so the zipper is concealed. Each sleeve has a fine sipper at the cuff.
