1960s Pierre Balmain Gold Silk Brocade Set

A chic hostess tunic and cigarette pant set was what the fashionable hostess would wear at night and this is a fabulous example. By Balmain this couture set is constructed from a silk brocade that has a puffed 3D effect. A muted gold catches the light and has interesting texture. The pants are cut flat fronted and low with a tapered cigarette leg. They close with a back hidden zipper and hook & eye at the waist. The tunic is cit quite boxy as was the fashion. it has a bottom at the neck and hidden zippers on each cuff and on the side. Little vents sit on each hip. Lightly padded shoulders and shockingly light weight, unlined fabric means maximum comfort - almost like wearing a pajama set! Incredible and in excellent condition.
