2005 Balenciaga Lesage Beaded Black Sculpted Tuxedo Blazer Jacket
Breathtaking Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga fully-bead jacket from his Spring 2005 documented runway collection. This gorgeous blazer is fashioned from sparkling iridescent black glass-beads onto an extremely strong mesh-net and silk satin. Exquisite stripe motif beadwork by the House of Lesage decorate the entire piece. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; couture embroidery houses such as Lesage represent hours of artistic handwork. I love the chic shoulder epaulettes and lean, long button-trimmed sleeves. The open front body-skimming shape flows into alluring over-sized pockets and complex winged tails which really dazzles the eye. It is an exquisite example of wearable luxurious from one of the most important houses of the modern era.
