Mauve silk and wool afternoon suit (with velvet jacket), by Jeanne Paquin, French, 1906-08. This dress highlights Paquin's technique to create interesting light and textural effects. Four kinds of decorative materials- box-pleated ruching, silk-wound beads, point d'esprit and patterned net lace - each with its own reflective textural quality, are combined on the bodice. The silk-wound beads, attached only at one end for maximum protrusion, add a contrasting shape and a glittering effect.
