Balenciaga Black Silk Gazar Buble Cocktail Dress - 1980's

Regular price £850.00

Tax included.

Important Vintage Balenciaga Black Gazar Cocktail Dress. This striking strapless dress by Balenciaga dates back from the late 1980’s. Made in black silk gazar, this hem-gathered balloon dress has an architectural and avantgarde silhouette. With oversized proportions, the structural look is preserved due to the gazar’s ability to hold shape. The size is governed by the silk lining. The bust is structured by boning and features a bow on the left side. Closure by zipper on the back. This gorgeous dress is a perfect example of designers re-visiting the archives and bringing the identity of the house to the new creations. This was particularly important around the time this dress was crafted, as Balenciaga had just been re-opened in 1987. A timeless piece of high-fashion that is sure to steal all the attention.
