"Henriette" Evening, Madeleine Vionnet: ca. 1923, lamé plain weave pieced into two checkerboard pattern, plain weave and crêpe stole. "...The front and back panels are patchworks, constructed from 28 silver and 28 golden patches in a checkered pattern, and their similar design and texture are reminiscent of Japanese lacquer-ware such as "Makie." Madeleine Vionnet was interested in Japanese kimono and fine arts, and in the early 1920s she created many works that seemed to be inspired by them."
