Dress of the Day - July 18, 2011
Dress of the Day: Pauline Trigère, Ensemble (1972). The French-born American designer of Russian-Jewish parentage was celebrated for her expert tailoring and clothing that epitomized sophistication in the mid-20th century. I admire her bold lines, often draping the body with geometric shapes that still mold to the figure. This ensemble includes a wool coat in which large lapels form a capelet in the back. The next photo features the blouse and skirt worn inside, coordinating colors creating an elegant depth of texture.
