Dinner dress, House of Drécoll, France, 1914-1916. Silk and fur. From Metropolitan Museum of Art site: “This dress shows a dramatic sense of style, exemplified [by] the use of ciré satin accented by the burgundy silk sash at the waist. The combination of such sumptuous materials was typical of the period, done by other couturiers as it added an extra element of luxury and refinement.”

Edwardian tea dress. Very reform movement if you ask me.
Finally got round to filling up the queue again. Have another busy couple of weeks coming up but this should do for a while… :)
