I’m kinda super pumped up to showcase this navy and white window to you for a couple of reasons. But first I should express my diplomatic love for all three of these looks. Like children, they are all special in their own way.  Now that said, we all have our favorites…. Mine just happens to be that 1970’s Roger Freres in the centre. It’s so epically chic! From it’s tank style top to it’s modern polka dot design to the fabric itself. I researched/googled to try and find out what exactly this fabric is called but to no avail. It’s comprised of a overcast stitched piping (?) that is looped and then sewn all together.  If you’re a textile geek like me and have any idea as to what it’s called, please let me know. Just click the pic to zoom on in.

My second fav item in this week’s window is that Lanvin 1970’s lucite necklace on the left. We’ve only had 3 Lanvin modernist pieces through the shop in the past 11 years, so it’s truly a treat. What’s your eye drawn to?

L~ 1950’s flocked floral skirt, size 0. Lanvin 1970’s modernist lucite necklace.

C~Roger Freres 1970’s polka dot dress, size 6.

R~Prada silk, “tennis anyone?” dress, size 6.

Nothing is chicer than wearing a white dress out in summer’s hot heat. And it also makes the most devilish of us appear ethereal. Tip; wearing white to court is effective. Yours truly may have been cleared of a charge,  in the ancient past, whilst looking truly innocent in a vintage Dior white suit. Coincidental?  Perhaps….

L~Contemporary fringe dress, size 2-6, Sold. Chanel 1980’s long necklace (doubled up).

C~Lanvin draped jersey dress, one size fits most Sold. 1950’s Haskell leaf necklace.

R~Balmain crochet dress (long sleeves pinned back), size 6.

Lanvin with a bite

Lanvin is the oldest fashion house still in operation, and for good reason. They produce quality Parisian fashions and this purse is a fine example of that. Purchased in December of 1983, this black crocodile Lanvin purse was bought and archived by a collector. It’s been waiting 29 years to be taken out for a drink already! It measures 9.5″ x 3″ x 8″ (without the handle). Please contact us for more details.

Lucite Love

     We just got in two fabulous modern pieces. Both are from the 1970’s and incorporate lucite and metal.The first is a Christian Dior chain necklace, dated 1974. We really love the swirl lucite rings in green and brown. Sold The next is an, ultra-rare, Lanvin massive cat eye pendant on twist chain necklace. Very bold and three dimensional. The last time we had one of these in, it got snapped up in no time! Sold Don’t hesitate, please contact us for details.
