Right: Callot Soeurs, evening dress, black silk crepe de chine, gold lamé, and tulle, c.1924, France, 2002.87.1, museum purchase

Quote:
Orientalist inspiration is realized in a streamlined silhouette that recalls the spiral draping of an Indian sari and the glazed surface of Chinese lacquer. The gold brocaded bands emphasize this Eastern influence while highlighting the cylindrical shape of the dress, underscoring both the exoticism and modernity of this Art Deco design.
