Description

    Marlene Dietrich's Balmain Sweater, Gucci Scarves and Handkerchiefs. Previously offered at Sotheby's (the auction tags are still attached), these Dietrich-owned and worn items beautifully reflect her understated elegance. Dietrich's brown Pierre Balmain collared cardigan is tastefully festooned with bows along the collar and is in Excellent condition. Though it was more than likely custom-made by Balmain for Dietrich, it appears to be of medium size and has a Balmain tag pinned along the inner collar. Her silk Gucci scarves, two total, still housed in their original Gucci containers, each bear the vintage Gucci logo and have hand rolled edges. The floral scarves each measure 34.5" x 34.5" and are in Excellent condition. Five of Dietrich's handkerchiefs also accompany the lot; they are delicately hand-embroidered and in Excellent shape as well. From the collection of John Strangi.
