Marketed toward the Paris elite, La Femme Chic was an influential magazine defining new trends in fashion during the the early part of the century. It was published between 1916 - 1939. Jolie deshabille Creatioin Elise Poret is a beauty. Divine in a soft shade of Pink silk, with pleating and fagotting details, the perfect piece for Madame to wear for breakfast, this dressing gown is so romantic! Divine!
Elegance, style and on the brink of the Roaring Twenties, this gorgeous and very collectable fashion plate was colored completely by hand in stunning colors of pink, lavender, brown and dove grey. Executed by some of the most prominent French artists, each is an original work of art, this is signed Souchel. To be expected in prints of this age, there may be a few characteristic areas of foxing etc., this print has some loss to both top corners as shown, but is such a beautiful image I could not resist her. Perfect to frame, display in a grouping, these feminine prints make a stunning statement!
