Textile Tuesday: Raoul Dufy for Paul Poiret

Evening Cape by Poiret, Printed Velvet by Dufy, 1911

It’s amazing what you find when you’re looking for a new background for your computer. Above is an evening cape by designer Paul Poiret. However, one cannot be a shrinking violet in a cape like this.

Reason #1: It’s in a museum and you’d have to be a brazen thief to be wearing it. A brazen thief, I hope with good object handling practices.

Reason #2: Get a load of that textile. I’m drooling.
