Dior’s tortoise shell and black
Accent news; tortoise—the buttons, the necklace, the color of hat. The dress—anarrow sheath, but with great, cartridge-pleated, hip-wide apron-skirt. Wavy-brimmed, very sidewards hat, designed by Dior.
Dior’s blade-panelled skirt. Line news; each panle separate; satin-lined, braid-bound—like a wind-wheel when you spin; new ratcheted hemline. The simple bodice is braid-boun, has dep high cuffs. Dior-designed velvet beret. Photographed at the International Housing Exposition at the Grand Palais in Paris.
