House of Balmain, evening dress, 1953

Christian Dior “May” dress ca. 1953 via The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art “In “May,” flowering grasses and wild clover are rendered in silk floss on organza. This “simple” patterning of meadow-gone-to-weed is composed of the tiniest French knots and the meticulously measured stitches of the hand embroiderer, suggesting that for Dior, it was not only that beauty resides in the most rustic, but also that the most successful artifice is a beguiling naivété.”
