BALENCIAGA GIVENCHY WINTER 1962





Balenciaga's newest evening dress: discreet, unjeweled, the year's most unexpected ballgown. In white silk cloche, clinging at the bosom, low and wrapped in back.









Balenciaga - ermine robe shaped in the round, lightly sashed in candy pink satin.










Givenchy's discreet young dinner dress, light as foam, the quintessence of slender elegance in charcoal gray satin-backed crepe. The bateau neck pulled high by a drawstring; the bodice, draping an unmarked waist.









Givenchy's ruffled black satin  organza dinner dress. Harry Winston jewels. Roger Vivier shoes.
