Silk and bast fiber robe à la française (back), French, 1770-75. The robe à la française was derived from the loose negligee sacque dress of the earlier part of the century, and is renowned for the beauty of the textiles used, the cut of the back employing box pleats and skirt decorations, known as robings, which showed endless imagination and variety.
