Balenciaga 1950-1951

balenciaga 1951

From the September 3, 1951 issue of LIFE magazine: “FULL-SLEEVED SUIT—The big sleeve came in for emphasis and even for exaggeration in Paris. Having made a start in the direction of the widened sleeve last spring, Balenciaga now carries it further in this black wool suit, whose three-quarter-length sleeves have a deep pleat opening out from the shoulder to give additional fullness.” (Gordon Parks—The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images) #fashionfriday #Balenciaga #GordonParks #1950s
