Blue silk crepe and faille dress (side view), by Emile Pingat, French, ca. 1885. "In this exemplary dress, Pingat presents a complex monochromatic scheme with a variety of textiles. The variations in tonality are created through textures of low luster patterned crepe contrasting with the sheen of faille alongside a sense of openness and light in the blue eyelet. All of these combined create an air of sophistication while the simple hint of cream cotton eyelet lends a sense of informality."
