New Swan Blouse
The Swan Pond.
You remember the scene…
High noon at La Côte Basque, circa 1960.
Red leather banquettes. Bright seacoast murals and bouquets. Thick silverware deployed with millimeter precision.
In the kitchen, the prep work has been going on since 6 a.m.; yes, the sauces are ready. Babe Paley is the first to arrive: a chilled La Doucette, please. Then Gloria Guinness,
C.Z. Guest, Slim Keith, Jackie, and Lee… (Well, perhaps not all at once).
A ballet of waiters and sommeliers ensues, bites of Grand Marnier soufflé and talk of indiscretions in high places. Mr. Truman Capote, surveying the scene, refers to the assembled as “the swans.” He was a sad case, but he knew how to pick the right word.
New Swan Blouse (No. 5957). Same vintage elegance as our original swan blouse but with a bit of redux on the fit. We think you’ll approve. Crisp cotton poplin faux wrap-style blouse with stitched-down overlap. Zipper at wearer's left. Striking oversized collar and lapel. Self-fabric waist ties wrap around and tie at wearer’s left. Back princess seams. Wide French cuffs. V-neck and stand-up collar will elongate you. Imported.
