Golden Age

“A golden race of mortals”: this is the Golden Age for the Greek poet Esiodo, an era of pure and spontaneous beauty, of deities and happy people. Christian Dior defined the phase started with its collection dated 1947 as The Golden Age of couture, “with the heart free from anxieties”: the names of the golden age of fashion on the Paris-London axis are Balenciaga, Norman Hartnell, Balmain and Givenchy.
Ten years later Maria Callas wears a golden dress in Venetian style at the Dallas Civic Opera; after half a century Cate Blanchett, captured by the pictures of Annie Leibovitz, hypnotizes the readers of Vanity Fair.
Gold goes through history and dresses the style, forever contemporary.
