$ 550.00

LAYAWAY AVAILABLE ON ALL ITEMS. DM ME IF INTERESTED. Simple and elegant vintage Gres silk blouse. True to form, this blouse was entirely hand sewn from start to finish. (Gres hated mass production and stayed true to her time and labor intensive couture roots for most of her career.) Made of tissue light black silk with a bold abstract white print and a subtle black textured and slightly sheer triangle/geometric print underneath. Inner weighted draped neck. Silk shoulder pads. Side metal zip and top hook/eye closure; unusually, the closure is on the right side of the blouse (maybe her client was left handed!). It's a truly gorgeous piece of fashion history. Labeled "Gres Paris" inside the left side seam. No other tags and no marked size.

Excellent vintage condition, wearable with no visible flaws.
