Dress of the Day - July 28, 2011 #1
Dress of the Day: Jeanne Paquin, Walking Suit (1910). The concert and after-party ended pretty late last night, so I didn't post dress of the day until now. Therefore here are two looks - suits by Paquin and Poiret - to return to the suit theme I started last week.
The first is a gray wool suit with metal accents by Jeanne Paquin, whom I've written about before. It is shown with an American silk blouse by Thurn. You can see several additional views on the Met Museum site, showing how the shape of the outit conforms with the hourglass, corseted figure. Compare with the following suit by Poiret.
