Brand two in my list of vintage obsessions!
Blanes- Blanes produced mostly high quality evening wear throughout the 50s and 60’s (possibly onto the 70s- but I am yet to find an example). They did also produce some daywear, although I find you are less likely to come across this!
The two examples above prove why i LOVE Blanes and i am desperate to come across some good examples of their day wear. When i was at vintage @ Goodwood last year i saw an amazing novelty print dress by Blanes, but it was £150 and at the time i just didn’t have the money. I have regretted not buying it ever since!
I personally don’t own any good examples of the brand. Normally for me this is a seller rather than a keeper as I find the dresses tend to be quite heavy.
This is one I am selling at the moment. I believe it is an early 1960’s example.
