Lame and Velvet Cape
French, 1920s
Three-quarter length, dipping lower in back, with voluminous hoodlike brown fur, possibly zibeline, and black velvet collar, single button closure, the cape fashioned in various layers, the exterior of gold lame woven with Art Deco leaf and vine pattern in the style of Raoul Dufy, the pattern cut out in curvilinear shapes from hip level and sewn with velvet inserts, creating drape and flare at bottom, the velvet areas underlayed with chiffon, the layering doubled at center back section, full black velvet lining with pockets.

Oral history attributes the cape to Paul Poiret.

Paul Poiret
Melodie
Afternoon dress
Purple silk damask, cotton velvet, cording
Circa 1912, France

This dress belonged to Poiret’s wife Denise, who served as model and muse for her husband. Acknowledging her modernity, he stated, “In dressing Madame Poiret, I strive for omission, not addition.” The bold color palette and rectilinear design, stripped of ornamentation, are typical of her style, as is the girlish, pleated white collar. Inspired by her slim, un-corseted figure, Poiret eliminated the waistline and played with proportion, creating a silhouette that appears to elongate and flatten the body.
