Balenciaga 80s Vintage Peplum Dress RED and Black M

This chic 1980s vintage day dress from Balenciaga looks like what Alexis or Krystal might wear to a corporate takeover! Stand-up collar, padded shoulders, modified batwing sleeves. The front waistline dips slightly in the center, echoed by the notched peplum with its faux pocket welts. Intricate looking double inverted kick pleat in back.



I can't really decipher the label - I 'm posting pics if you care to try, but please - consider the measurements.


Inches Centimeters
Bust 42" 106.5
Shoulders 15" 38
Waist 31" 78.5
Hips 40" 101.5
Bodice length from (padded) shoulder seam 16.5" 42
Skirt length 22.5" 57

Medium weight herringbone weave, using gleaming dark red and matte black. The weave is somewhat loose, and all the inside fabric edges are overlocked, so I'm hesitant to snip fabric for a fiber burn test. I am guessing a blend of wool and silk or rayon.


Balenciaga, Paris


There's a short zipper in the back of the skirt that is hidden by the buttons that close the bodice and peplum.


Very good to excellent. I don't see any stains, holes, or tears. A close inspection reveals three small snags, two on the right sleeve and one on the left.
