Years ago, I collected a number of vintage patterns. My favorite is this Patou gown and I’m considering having it made for an upcoming event. I love a square neckline and need short sleeves since white, elbow-length gloves are required. My own accessories would keep the dress from looking vintage, which isn’t a bad thing, actually. Navy is chic, too.
In industry news: The Jean Patou fashion house is being resurrected by LVMH. Guillaume Henry, the newly appointed creative director, will hopefully revive the label. Founded in 1912, Patou was renowned for sportswear. Sadly, today it is only known for its perfumes.
