Black silk "Robe de Style" dress by Madeleine Vionnet, French, ca. 1939. Madeleine Vionnet was a consummate technician, particularly known for her innovative use of the bias cut and the mathematically precise construction of her garments. Minimalist by philosophy, Vionnet's construction details were often executed so as to create decorative effects, obviating the need for any trimming. This robe de style is from the last part of the designer's career; she retired in 1942. It may have been created by Madame Charmant, her right-hand assistant. Although the robe de style is more indicative of 1910-12 fashion, the combination of a transparent dress and slim slip underskirt puts the dress, with its active visibility of the body, firmly in the 1930s.
