Photographs, 1910s, #1

Disbound scrapbook, 167 photographs of unannotated garments. Designed by Lucile, Ltd. between mid-1910s to 1919. A disbound scrapbook. The range in garments photographed includes wool travelling suits, frothy formal gowns, exotic orientalist designs, and fur winter wear. This album shows the scope of Lucile's work, and highlights the variation within her ever-romantic vision that spanned over two decades. This particular volume has some interesting examples of shape, cut and draping, few rectangular/straight silhouettes; also of note is the older woman modeling some ensembles - #32, #34, #35, #36, #43, #66. Photography by Joel Feder.
