Found in this dress is a fairly rare label from an excellent French couture house of the1920s. Making this dress more unique is the fact that it is a day dress, which is not as common to find in costume collections as evening wear, especially from this period. The open collar with V-neck is a classic sportif look from the 1920s and the geometric patterning lends an artistic quality.
