Sumptuous fur and ravishing color, like that on a dress created for Denise Poiret to wear to the wedding of Germaine Boivin in 1921, offer embellishment on minimal shapes. Oscar de la Renta fuchsia brocade and wolverine-hem dress and shoes. VBH earrings. Chanel gloves. Wolford tights.
Languid lines, such as those of Poiret’s robes sacs, allowed ladies to leave behind the binds of corset dressing and overwrought opulence. Vera Wang jeweled-and-sequined silver chemise. Fred Leighton earrings. Hari Gems necklace and rings.
