    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. It was more than likely a custom-made piece by Balmain for Dietrich, and it appears to be of medium size with a Balmain tag pinned along the inner collar. Her silk Gucci scarves, two total, are still housed in their original Gucci containers, each bearing the vintage Gucci logo and hand rolled edges. The floral scarves both 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.
