Even the concerns that are so widely spread in the female community over the fate of the fashion king — who is currently fighting in the lines — have not helped him stay in the lead on this side of the Atlantic.
Paul Poiret, well known in his favorite Paris as the ruler of all fashion studios, and elsewhere in the world as the fashion commander-in-chief, put aside the tricks and subtleties of creating fashionable items and instead took a rifle in his hands and went to protect his motherland. He cannot be referred to as a soldier solely on paper, who serves at some safe distance from the frontline. On the contrary, he is a private serving in the infantry, covered in mud and dust, and his hands — created for ingenious work with fabrics and designing clothes for female figures are now used to dig trenches and construct fortifications, provided they are not engaged in pulling the trigger on the line of fire. At the same time, his costly institution — a paradise for girlfriends and spouses of millionaires — has been occupied with making military uniform. The grim spirit of war currently rules undividedly in the famed Martine Salon.
