Evening Dress | c. 1910
1653 asked: anything from around 1910? a bit before or after is fine!
you got it.
Evening ensemble ca. 1975 via The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art
“This evening ensemble is an iconic example of Halston’s work, which can be seen by the simple silhouette and use of cashmere for evening wear. The columnar dress hangs on the body, allowing the tie-belt to accent the waist. Enhancing the slim, lithe look is the full length cardigan sweater. The simplistic shape and the luxurious fabric create an elegant ensemble.”

Evening Ensemble | Callot Soeurs | c. 1910
Rita de Acosta Lydig (1880-1929), a noted beauty and style icon of the early twentieth century, owned this garment attributed to Callot Soeurs. A great admirer and collector of lace, de Acosta Lydig favored simple silhouettes which she paired with lace vests or jackets. De Acosta Lydig’s preference for bifurcated garments, which were commonly worn by women in 1910, indicates her idiosyncratic taste in dress.
