Sixties Savoir Faire

Savoir Faire is just loving this vintage Pierre Balmain silk scarf from the 1960’s.

The artist, who designed this fabulous piece of savoir faire, definitely had their finger on the pulse of the period. While not really a logo and instantly recognisable as such, it packs a design punch. Not only does it embrace the flower power aesthetic of the times it screams luxe for the young jet setter who wore it.

I think it is a fabulous attempt by a couture house to embrace their younger clients, and ensure their patronage, by providing up to the minute accessories. The wonderful shades of magenta and purples contrast brilliantly with the white background.

Sheer Savoir Faire!
