Couture Club

embroidered Oriental bottleEvening gowns with intricate embroidery require hundreds of hours of manual labor. The artisans who create this work typically spend their entire careers in one couture house like the House of Lanel which specializes in embroidery. This year, because of the weak dollar, I simply refuse to spend sixty thousand on a new gown. So I'll take a small dose of couture in the form of a limited edition, framed example like this gorgeous Oriental bottle sewn onto a silk satin canvas. A stunning piece of art for the boudoir. ($986)
