It's 1965. Balenciaga shows this deceptively simple evening gown in bold fuschia crepe. But it's 1965! You can't just have a simple pink column gown and expect to make an impression. So, the designer adds a huge stole of matching pink coque feathers. Now you're talking!
I said the gown was deceptively simple because look what happens in the back. Volume is tucked into a knot at the waist. And that feather stole? It's really a large complete circle of feathers.
