Largely unheard of, Lelong played a pivotal role in 20th century fashion. A superb businessman and talent spotter rather than designer, he first discovered Dior and Balmain who both worked for him.
During WW2, when Paris had been occupied by the Nazis and when Hitler wanted to make Berlin the European centre of fashion, it was Lelong in his role as head of the Syndicat de la haute couture that changed the Fuhrer's mind.
There is more to fashion history than just dresses!

The height of Art Deco and as modern today as it was nearly 100 years ago. A sinuous, backless and shimmering masterpiece by Lucien Lelong.

Made 53 years ago for the Dior Summer 1965 collection and every bit as wearable today, in soft and dreamlike pastel silk chiffon. SIGH.

All kinds of love for this Great Unknown maxi dress. Fifty years old, it's as perfect for Summer 2017 as it was for Summer 1967.

Step away from the flower crowns and faux fur... because nothing beats original late 60s boho chic for Coachella.
