Poiret created whimsical designs for his children, as well, such as a chain-mail-topped dress for daughter Perrine in 1922. Alexander McQueen metal-ring tank and black ostrich-feather skirt. Fred Leighton earrings and bag. Hari Gems and VBH rings. Wolford tights.
Body at Rest The Ballets
Russes, Persian dancers, and Arabian Nights all populated Poiret’s fantasy landscape. Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière silk muslin, wool felt, and badger-fur-trim dress, rabbit-and-badger chapka, tights, and badger boots. Fred Leighton ring and bag.
