Little Black Dress
It is an absolute must in any feminine wardrobe and the ultimate challenge to any fashion designer. But not that little! Chained by Balenciaga, zipped by Alaïa, embroided in glass by Calvin Klein or « grand soir » by Oscar de la Renta, the little black dress, the « LBD » for experimented fashionistas, turns chic, sexy, casual or super elegant.
Coco Chanel, always searching for this inimitable casual elegance that takes you from the market to the Opera, unvailed the first one in the 50’s, immediately followed by the fashion world. Any confirmed designer has to give his personnal interpretation of the little black dress just as a wedding dress has to close a Couture fashion show.
Over 50 different pieces selected by US Vogue collaborator André Leon Talley to remember a century of fashion, sponsored by MAC.
Hosted in a spectacular private mansion across from the Eiffel tower where Mona Von Bismarck lived in the 50’s, the place is a must see on it’s own. Airy lounges with fabulous views over the tower and the river and the Mona café opening on a shady terrace and a private garden. A oasis of charm and peace in the heart of Paris
