Paul Poiret
Evening chemise
Gold silk chiffon, beads, and rhinestones
Circa 1926, France
The Museum at FIT, P83.5.9, Museum purchase

Paul Poiret was known for exotic ornamentation applied to the classic silhouette of the 1920s. Although the line of this dress is simple and the hemline youthful, the sumptuous beadwork still conveys the quality of excess traditionally associated with luxury.
