1930s Grande Maison de Blanc Floral Silk Crepe Garden Party Dress with Wrap Front Capelet
This romantic frock evokes images of late night garden strolls under the light of the silvery moon, while the scent of hyacinth lingers in the air. It is perfect for summer lawn parties or a garden rendezvous.
This stunning dress is bias cut and fashioned in a luxurious crinkled black silk crepe covered in bouquets of vibrant summer flowers. It has a V-shaped neckline, flutter sleeves and an attached capelet that wraps and ties in the front.
All edges are wonderfully finished with rolled hems. Dress has no closures and must be pulled over the head.
Originating in Paris, Grande Maison de Blanc, New York was an upscale household linens and laces store. In the 1910s, the store branched out and began to carry high-quality clothing, many of which can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art today.
This dress is a testament to the high European quality that so many people desired.
** Dress has a great deal of stretch thanks to the bias cut. **
