This short day dress in thick mastic silk crepe, with a wide round neck and sleeveless, is marked at the waist by a wide belt, creating refined drapes on the sides. It is characteristic of Cristóbal Balenciaga's work, skillful both in the minimalist cuts of his haute couture works and in the choice of materials with delicate nuances.
