Super excited to showcase these three black tie looks for you!  The centre gown has lost it’s label over the years but that doesn’t stop her bead encrusted brilliance from shinning through. We’ve never had a dress this densely beaded before. When worn, it looks as though one has been dipped in black paint. It’s truly too fab for words.

C~ 1990’s does 1930’s black bugle bead and silk chiffon gown, size 6-8.

Since winter refuses to go away we would like to take this opportunity and showcase some of the coats that have come in recently. The Jean-Louis Scherrer Couture cape on the right hails from 1981 and is as classic as all hell, but la pièce de résistance is our centre coat. It’s from YSL’s 1976 Russian Collection is absolutely, certifiably,  worth dying for. She’s museum quality, in pristine condition, and to top it all off she has pom poms!

L~1960’s cashmere double breasted coat, size 8-10. Hermès tiger scarf.

C~YSL 1976 Russian Collection mohair fringe coat, one size fits most. Michael Kors dress, size 4.

The last couple of weeks the windows have been super label heavy so we decided to pull a 180 and do an all vintage window. You know, just to balance out the universe a little bit. You likey? It’s making the pedestrians smile and someone even put a fuzzy heart sticker on the pane. Guess that makes it “golden” then? 😉

Love is in the air and our window for Valentine’s day. What could be more lovely than a pink wool bouclé Chanel suit? Well we’ve got two of them and the sweetheart on the right is couture from the 1950’s. She comes with some provenance as well as she once belonged to a model that worked for the house of Chanel. Rumour has it that while Mlle Coco herself was doing a fitting on her that she actually pinched her nipple! Intentional or not we may never know, but love is love.

L~1980’s Chanel wool bouclé suit. Jacket size S-M and skirt is a 0-2.
