Since the dawn of time and until today, the seasons have forced the human being to adapt his outfits. Elegants have not deviated from the rule, and the great designers have helped them a lot. Some high-end houses, such as Lucien Lelong, Madeleine Vionnet, Jean Patou and many others, have even made it their specialty.
If today the summer toilets denude often the body, at other times even recent enough the postures and the constraints are always present. Summer and winter, we kept corsets, petticoats, turns and baskets underneath, big shoes, capelines, hoods and shawls above.
Even in the heat of summer, whatever the cost, stay “chic”!
