    Description

    Christian Dior, Mainbocher and Galanos Designs, Owned by Edie Adams. We start this lace filled lot with an elegant cream corded lace coat with cream lining by Mainbocher, a double breasted design with four cream buttons and two flap pockets. Next is a form fitting strapless dress designed by Christian Dior in black lace over brown netting and black satin lining that is to be covered with a short sleeved top edged in layers of lace that snaps down the back. In lace and netting, the form of the stayed bodice reads through. The third piece is a brown corded lace dress on a brown twill foundation by Galanos, a simple straight sheath with overlay falling from the buttoned band at waist front, a center back zipper reveals full lining. Each lace creation is in Very Fine condition, though there is a slight discolored spot above the left pocket of the cream coat, Dior dress in size 10. Accompanied by a hardcover copy of Edie Adams' autobiography, Sing a Pretty Song. From the Ernie Kovacs/Edie Adams Estate Archive.
