Jacques Doucet (French, 18711929)
Day dress, 1903
Quote:
Day dress of silk panne velvet with trimming of antiqued silver metallic lace. Stylistically, dresses from this period were much the same with their high necks, corseted bodices, tiny waists, and long skirts with the fullness gathered into the back and extending into trains. Sleeve shape provided one ot the few points of variation in construction. In this case, the three-quarter length sleeve is wide and puffed enhancing the hourglass silhouette and yet not so exaggerated as to distort the proportions of the original wearer who was small. Doucet's choice of fabric, silk panne velvet, is fluid, drapes well and would have moved alluringly on the wearer. This is in contrast to the proclivity of his chief rival, the House of Worth which often created dresses with stiff forms.

The House of Mirth
Quote:
Gus Trenor:
"Is your last box of Doucet dresses a failure, or did Judy rook you out of
everything at bridge last night?"

Lily Bart:
"I have had to give up Doucet; and
bridge too--I can't afford it."
From "The House of Mirth"
by Edith Wharton, 1905
