I am now so ashamed that I went to Paris and did not visit Didier Ludot. Quel dommage! The boutique is one of the most famous in the world for vintage haute couture as well as other amazing vintage pieces. From Jacques Fath to Chanel, you can find anything imaginable there from as far back in the past as the late 1930’s. Some of the pieces have never been worn (thanks to the large wardrobes of the women who owned the pieces), but most things will set you pack a pretty penny. Several. Euros to be more exact.
The little black dress is a wardrobe essential for every woman. It can be strapless, long-sleeve, simple in cotton, adorned in sequins and so much more. You can never go wrong with wearing one and you can dress it up and dress it down: however you see fit! In the The Little Black Dress: Vintage Treasure, Monsieur Ludot shows his amazing collection of vintage LBDs. From Balmain to Gaultier, he has it all and photographs of each are shown alongside photos of our fashion icons rocking similar styles including Catherine Deneuve, Sophia Loren, Edith Piaf, Marilyn Monroe, Paloma Picasso and many more.
This is a must-have for every fashion-minded woman who knows that history is one of the most important things when it comes to style.
