Paris Couture - 1937

Today, the next in our continuing series about Paris couture in the 1930s.  The year is 1937 and the beauty is in the incredible details.  Which is your favorite?

Marcel Rochas black crepe dress adorned with light blue gathered ribbons.  Note the large holes at the neckline and sleeves that the ribbons thread through.

Charles Worth black velvet dress with intricate embroidery on the bodice.

Rosevienne dress in black knitted lace.  The skin shows through where the slip isn't!

Lucien Lelong black velvet dress with a white Guipure lace bodice.  Bows accent the lace.

Elsa Schiaparelli brings the ultimate in fun details.  The black crepe suit is accented with red embroidery around the pockets in the shape of lips.  And that is her famous shoe hat in black with a red heel.
