I rarely dress in pre-1940s fashions, but I'd make a huge exception for this enchantingly pretty Myrbor (French, 1922–1936) fall leaf patterned dress. #autumn #vintage #dress #1920s
Evening dress Myrbor (French, 1922–1936) Date: 1924 Culture: French Medium: silk, metal Dimensions: Length at CB: 54 in. (137.2 cm) Credit Line: Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Gift of the Brooklyn Museum, 2009; Gift of Mrs. V. D. Crisp, 1963 Accession Number: 2009.300.3248
Evening Dress, Myrbor (French, 1922–1936): 1924, French, silk/metal. "The French couture house Myrbor was opened in July 1922 by Marie Cuttoli, a French statesman's wife, on 17 rue Vignon in Paris. Only in operation until 1936, the house employed prominent European and Russian artists including Picasso and Matisse to create designs for the interior decorations and clothing which the house produced. Both Eastern European émigrés who worked as set designers with Leon Bakst, Natalia Goncharova, a Russian Futurist artist, and Sarah Lipska, of Polish origins, were among the house's coterie of artists. These two women executed designs for embroideries and, in Goncharova's case, garments, which extant fashion sketches document. Lipska's work is represented in the Brooklyn Museum collection in the form of embroidery samples. Both women's designs for Myrbor are characterized by abstract motifs and Cubist-inspired patterns which were fashioned in embroidery and appliqués applied in a distinctive open whip stitch. The effect of vibrantly colored leaves, accented with subtly shimmering lamé slivers as the leave's veins, falling across the stark black ground on this dress is arresting and effective. The unusual placement of the embroidery around the skirt is artistic and evidence of the involvement of artists in Myrbor's embroidery and garment designs. The shirred triangular skirt panels are an additional artistic touch. Garments by Myrbor are rare, and they represent an important moment in fashion history. Another variant of this same motif applied on rust tulle is in the Brooklyn Museum collection on an embroidery sample by Sarah Lipska (see 2009.300.1890)."

Embroidered dress, c. 1923. The "Egyptian" color combination of yellowy-gold ground fabric with touches of blue and red embroidery suggests the aesthetic inspiration of this dress from the FIDM Museum Study Collection. Its abstract and straightforward embroidery motifs resemble a much simplified version of hieroglyphics. This dress was most likely completed at home, by a skilled embroiderer who worked from images seen in newspapers, fashion periodicals or needlework patterns.

Eugene Robert Richee ran the portrait studio at Paramount Pictures where Louise Brooks (pictured) was under contract. This remarkable photo emphasises the actress' skin, trademark blunt haircut and pearls. "What could have been a tricky photograph really becomes a masterpiece of 20s photography," says Robert Dance.

vintageblackglamour: Valeria Perojo Frias, born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba in 1926. Photo circa 1940s. This is one of the first pictures I shared on VBG, found via Scott Schuman’s fantastic blog, The Sartorialist. It was submitted by Ms. Frias’s daughter, Ena Frias, and she provided this description to The Sartorialist:"This is my beautiful mother, Valeria Perojo Frias, born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba on March 23, 1926. This photograph was taken sometime in the mid to late 1940’s. I believe she was at a christening of a friend’s child in Havana. She was an amazing and inspirational woman - making her way to the US with my father by way of Miami in late 1959, and ending up in New York City two years later, where I was born and raised. She was always a fashionista and had that amazing aura that exuded beauty, charm and grace. And boy could she pose for a picture, eh? She always will be my very own personal style icon.”
