Evening Cape Madeleine Vionnet, 1920s Kerry Taylor Auctions

Evening Cape Madeleine Vionnet, 1920s Kerry Taylor Auctions (OMG that dress!)

Crêpe backed silk satin In 1931 Vogue coined the phrase ‘poured in’ to describe the fit of the sheath dress. The long bias-cut panels cling to the natural curves of the body, which, for the first time was the fashionable shape. The skilful cut and the inventive design of twisted serpent-like tails is reminiscent of Elsa Schiaparelli’s work. Title Evening Dress, 1932
