Meet the designer: Molyneux and the iconic hourglass suit.


This Molyneux suit is one of my favorites. Ever. It is the very definition of hourglass. And it is glamorous yet simple.

A few factoids about Molyneux:

* He was born in London.

* He opened his first salon in 1919 in Paris.

* He was known for his "never too rich or too thin", "refined at the edge of outrageous" designs.

* Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich were fans.

* He counted Noel Coward among his pals.

So. Now you know. That is, if you didn't before.

This gorgeous and rare pattern is available at The Blue Gardenia. Stop by and shop our newly designed website. I think you'll like it. I do.
