Past perfect

Few weeks ago I was at the viewing of Kerry Taylor auction for vintage and antique fashion. There was an amazing selection of clothes and accessories from various decades of fashion and even of 18th and 19th centuries. It was a lovely journey through the vintage Chanel, Paco Rabanne, Madame Gres, Galliano, McQueen, Comme des Garcons, Balmain etc. I could see and appreciate every tiny detail in these pieces, how immaculately they was made, how exquisitely decorated. However the ones I liked most of all were those slightly worn out bystanders of the long bygone eras with damaged beadwork, fragile laces, exposed stitching, like this old Lanvin dress. And of course there were quite nice Comme des Garcons and Issey Miyake pieces from late 80s and early 90s.
