again, with the checks

André Ostier, Balmain Soie Pirate by Pierre Balmain, Summer 1952

the check obsession, more here


  1. there is such infinate variety in checks, I particularly like straight and bias mixed checks in suits and dresses

  2. I would have loved to have known the true colors in the black & white Balmain fashion shot. Because of the gloves, I am tempted to think the darkest value was black, but that is difficult to say, no?

  3. Miss Rayne- a check really changes cut on the bias-Love these 2 examples.

    John- ah-- So hard to tell in these b&w photographs. I went back to the books hoping there would be an add'l description or a cutting of the actual Abraham fabric , I might say a scarlet?

  4. Gorgeous dress!
    I love!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Have a good day!

  5. Pierre Balmain from the 50's--perfection. This dress and model remind me of what Carolina Herrera does today. Thanks. Mary

  6. There will never ever be too many checks for me!!!!!!
