evening gown 1906 | Evening Dress, "Les Hortensias bleus," Doucet: ca. 1897-1906, French ...

Jacques Doucet was commissioned to “translate” the feeling of Robert de Montesquiou’s poem “Les Hortenses Bleues” (The Blue Hydrangeas) into an evening gown. Between 1897 & 1906 he made this dress.

Metmuseum: This is a nice example of the teagown made by the House of Worth. This shows the luxurious lifestyle indicative of prominent women of the time. The teagown could be worn without a corset and was therefore a more comfortable form of dress.
