Weekend Eye Candy - 1907 Paul Poiret Red Dress

paul poiret dress 1907, paul poiret evening coat 1912Poiret is right at the top of my list of favorite designers. Here, his 1907 "Eugenie" dress in red crepe de chine embroidered with gold. Tulle edged with gold braid fills the neckline for modesty. Over the dress, a 1912 evening coat in red uncut velvet lined with purple crepe de chine and edged in silver fringe. The wide collar is embroidered with braid and paste rhinestones, then edged in fur.

Happy weekend everyone!
