Gretta Garbo was one of Cristobal Balenciaga's most devoted clients having dressed her for her entire career. She was elegant, sexy, sultry even by today's standards.
The Gretta top was inspired by the collaboration between the two icons as a top that is sexy, yet still architectural as Hubert de Givenchy called The Master, "the architect of haute couture."
