Design House Callot Soeurs French

Not on view

In a sense, the work of Callot Soeurs in the 1920s deflated the nineteenth-century silhouette, while distilling the sumptuous materials of dress. The tubular modernism of the Callot Soeurs is a contrast of structural reduction and ornamental play, with motifs similar to those seen in the Chinese export shawls popular in the 1920s.
