Weekend Eye Candy - Balenciaga, 1950

 Have you started to think about a coat for winter yet?  Balenciaga designed this coat in 1950.  He called this the "melon" sleeve.  That thick gray wool is gathered about as tightly as it can be into the sleeve cuff.

Here it is in closer detail.  Do you love?

I'm getting started on a winter coat, in baby blue wool, and I'm going to try my hand at recreating these sleeves.

Wish me luck!
