The Egyptian-style scarab motifs on the belt and the asymmetric skirt design. It is a good example of the oriental influence on fashion that was popular at the time. Jeanne Paquin established her fashion house in Paris in 1891, and won popularity among society women and actresses because of her beautifully-made dresses that were gorgeous and romantic. She opened branches in London in 1896, and established lingerie and fur sections, achieving success through this sales expansion.
