Circa 1910 Jacques Doucet dress, Paris. This dress is not typical of the work produced by the House of Doucet, for its choice of fabric is extremely modern. The randomly spaced white polka dots printed on the bronze chiffon add an artistic touch. The fringe is an unusual decorative element as well, that exhibits an adventuresome element.
