DÉCOUVREZ LES 14 MUSÉES DE LA VILLE DE PARIS
The white silk jersey evening gowns that made Madame Grès' reputation – sometimes to the point of identifying her with them alone – were designed as exercises in minimalism. Stringently pared down, this collection drawing is a perfect expression of the couturière's intentions, with the face reduced to an oval in order to focus attention on the gown's line and structure. Here we have a kind of encapsulation of all the Grès pleated dresses of the 1950s.
