Dior’s latest ad campaign, inspired by Manet’s Le déjeuner sur l’herbe
Простой и вкусный перекус, который отлично подходит к вечерним кинопросмотрам. На месте моркови может оказаться также батат. В отличие от привычной картошки-фри этот вариант будет более легким. Без фритюрницы и рафинированного масло.
“Eventail” Cocktail Dress
This piece is unarguably the 1950s moderne of the cocktail hour. With a strapless neckline, a rather ostentatious constructive line, and a colorful surface print, the dress would have been rejected for the early evening prior to the 1950s, as its various components belonged (respectively) to late evening or daytime dressing. By mid-century, Parisian couturiers were going to great lengths to enforce an exaggerated formality in order to differentiate themselves from American designers.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art
This short evening dress of black lace consists of three layers. The first layer is a built-in bra supported by six bones, two in front and back, one at each side. The second layer is a slip of cream-colored silk with a sheer black chiffon overlay. The slip is shaped like a sheath and has a wide band of lace at the hem. The outer layer consists of a loose-fitting baby-doll dress with a triple tier of ruffles on the skirt. The dress has a boat neckline, and shoulder straps of black satin ribbon finished in bows. There is a zipper closure at the left seam.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art
After closing the couture house during World War II, Chanel, with characteristic determination, reopened it in 1954. When the first collection was not met favorably by critics, she persevered, eventually succeeding with an updated look that appealed to her loyal clientele, as well as a new group of discerning women. While the silhouette of this ensemble does not immediately identify it as the work of Chanel, the concept (a practical pairing of a dress and a coat with matching lining), details (the turned back cuffs and camellia trim) and black-and-white coloration are signature elements of Chanel’s aesthetic.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art
