Going, Going, Galanos!

This has always been a big Galanos town. His style, supremely elegant and sophisticated, yet utterly wearable, is quintessential San Francisco. He retired long ago, but for those who missed out on his designs when they were new, you have two opportunities to buy Galanos at auction right now.

Galanos, 1954

The first offering is from Ricky’s Exceptional Treasures. From 1954, it’s a little black cocktail dress with a V-neck and full skirt. Fun and flirty and perfect for a chilly San Francisco night. It has a “Buy It Now” price of $899.00.

And this is a black satin and crepe bat-wing cocktail dress from the 1970s. Freemans Auction in Philadelphia has estimated the price at $400 – $600.00, which would be an absolute steal. The auction date is June 7, but you can go to their site and put your bid in now.
