Weekend Eye Candy - Omar Kiam for Ben Reig

This brilliant red cocktail dress dates to the first half of the 1950s and is by Omar Kiam for Ben Reig.  Kiam is known for using a single dramatic detail on his evening dresses and here he adds a giant hand-painted silk poppy on the shoulder.

Heavenly - such strong impact - and I love the shoes too. Great idea to liven up a dull gown too with such a conspicuous flower. thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend.
