1960s Numbered Couture Balmain Suit

A rare and wonderful find, this is am amazing numbered haute couture suit by Pierre Balmain. Everything about it is a showcase to what you get when attention is paid to every last detail. The dress is beautifully cut and has a unique double zipper. Just the process of zipping and snapping everything perfectly into place makes you feel like you are wearing something really special. The bodice is a deep blue and kept simple. Long refined sleeves, a high neck and a body that skims over your curves. The skirt has an extra layer of fabric inside so that it retains its shape and hangs perfectly. It is lined in the finest, softest silk that feel wonderful against the skin. Both the skirt and jacket are custom, hand screened in a check that highlights the blue has just enough pop to it to keep the ensemble from being staid. I love the top set pockets. Both pieces are tagged and both tags have handwritten numbers under each label. The original belt is present. Note the perfection of how even the button lines up with the pattern of the fabric! It is a testament to couture and the set is in excellent condition. Item# DD760
