LEOPARD PRINT JACKET BY JOHN GALLIANO FOR DIOR RESORT 2008

LEOPARD PRINT JACKET BY JOHN GALLIANO FOR DIOR RESORT 2008

John Galliano channeled a sixties motif into his designs for Christian Dior Resort 2008 with bright prints and patterns like paisley and leopard on glittery lame and satin fabrics. The models wore scarves and cat-eye sunglasses down the runway, veering on a punk-rock 90s glam retro-camp aesthetic. We just got in this all-silk electric green leopard printed jacket that comes with a bedazzled belt from that collection. It’s in Excellent/Never Worn condition, in a size US 6/FR 38. As wild as it is, the garment is still super wearable and elegant, and since it’s Galliano for Dior, it’s without a...

WESTWOOD BONDAGE

WESTWOOD BONDAGE

This parachute jacket is a Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren design that was sold at Seditionaries, the store they opened together on Kings Road in London where punk as a style gained popularity in the 1970s. The bondage adjustable straps were a trademark at the store, and shows the irreverence and audacity of the movement. Wearing it in the archival picture is Lil Debbie, famous member of the Bromley Contingent, who were the first punk groupies. Other valuable classics of theirs are t-shirts printed with pornographic drawings and Queen Elizabeth iconography. This rare museum-worthy item is in Excellent condition, and...

MARCHESA SPRING 2016 RTW GOWN

This sheer nude gown with floral embroidery from the Marchesa Spring 2016 RTW collection is beautiful.

Just in time for the Emmys, we have this dress and other Marchesa gowns and accessories in store. See you tonight for the Trunk Show Launch Party from 6-8pm hosted by Sky...

5AC TOTE

5AC TOTE

Though the 5AC Tote from the Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2015 RTW collection is as eccentric and artful as we expect any Margiela piece to be, the bag in particular is remarkably wearable and practical. There's one interior zip pocket you can throw literally everything into and a durable shoulder strap for comfort, making it great for everyday errand running dressed down, nights out with friends and also a fabulous travel bag. Vogue.com called it "a sleek, streamlined, chic satchel," and the It Bag of the summer, as Amal Clooney, Karlie Kloss and Tilda Swinton were all spotted with it....
