The yellow dress in 54. Lovely. Poiret seems really influential--even now. Cavalli's F/W 06/07 collection had some really Poiret-esque coats in it.

Thanks for posting the article and edit

A shame they didn't use any actual Poiret pieces ...oh well.

Attributed to Paul Poiret
French, 1879-1944
"Persian" Coat, ca. 1926
Silk; velvet, and metallic
thread; plain weave;
embroidered

A repeating pattern of heraldic birds and the tree of life lends a vaguely Byzantine air to this evening coat, probably designed by Paul Poiret, one of the Parisian couturiers who maintained an interest in exoticism throughout his career.

Thanks, MissMagAddict!

In the article, it says something about "the hobble skirt" What's that? Are they the skirts with tapering in at the knees and then flared below the knees?

Style
Hip Hip, Poiret

By ALIX BROWNE; Photographs by LUCIANA VAL and FRANCO MUSSO

“The fashion of tomorrow has always seemed to me more lovely than the fashion of today,” wrote Paul Poiret in his 1931 autobiography, “King of Fashion.” By then, the designer’s illustrious reign had all but faded (he died in 1944 penniless and appropriately bitter), but his heyday in Paris before the First World War would guarantee his legacy. In the simplest of terms, he was a draper rather than a tailor, credited with liberating fashion from an exaggerated corseted silhouette that made a woman look like an hourglass — or as he put it, as if she were “hauling a trailer.” He was also the father of a certain opium-den chic, prone to heady metallic embroideries and the color red, an Oriental streak that was probably attributable to his belief that in a previous life he was an Oriental prince. Now the king is back.

A Poiret retrospective opens at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 9, an event already much anticipated in the fall collections, where his influence was apparent on everyone from Proenza Schouler to Prada. (The clothes on these pages will be hitting the sales floor right about when the show closes on Aug. 5.) All the attention would not have been lost on Poiret, who made little distinction between designer and despot. “He must follow out his idea, cost what it may,” he wrote of himself in the third person. “He will not be followed the first year, but he will be copied the next.” And the next.

Yes, you answered your own question

Thank you!

I guess I'm just a genius or something.

And thanks for the New York Times article, too!

That Vogue editorial is superb....one of their best in a while.

I cannot wait to see the exhibit to see what Koda and crew have pulled together. I have high hopes after last year's Anglomania exhibit that this years will not disappoint.
