A bit of fashion today on VDP, Toile de Jouy fashion of course. Above, the 1790s. Pretty?

Un peu de mode aujourd'hui sur VDP, la mode en toile de Jouy bien sûr ! Ci-dessus, en 1790. Joli ?
XVIIIth century Toile de Jouy clothes
Pastoral style of the late XVIIIth century. Sweet? Next to it, barely visible is Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf's full evening dress.

Although I couldn't provide specifics without some googling, isn't there a tradition in French painting of peasants working in the fields, who could be dressed in something like this?

Lovely patterns for that time period.

Randy said...

Can't imagine having to wear stuff like that these days.

I love looking at old fashions! These are lovely though I'm in to rush to trade my jeans and turtlenecks for them.

Hmmm I'm a fan of the old vintage fashions but these may be a bit too vintage even for me...

Very chic!

The left one on the first shot looks a bit.like a Laura Ashley print. Not the same century however.

The jacket in the last shot.. Yes, yes, yes! It's a bit like a Channel jacket, could be worn with smart jeans or dolled up to the max, j'adore..

These all have a look of winter flannel pjs?

Nice exhibit. The Qajar patterns are lovely.

Sharon Anck said...

Such pretty fabrics in so many patterns. I love the two patterns, inside and out of that jacket.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

What amazes me is the color and details in the fabrics made 200+ years ago.

une belle idée de sortie fin juillet quand mes petites filles seront là !

VP said...

A very interesting assortment!

I'm glad that you liked these outfits. They'd look a bit strange here amidst all the T-shirts and shorts, though. :)

Barbara Farr said...

I guess they were attractive back on the day, but not for me. 👗

William Kendall said...

Somehow I imagine they'd be very uncomfortable to wear!

EG CameraGirl said...

So many button and/or ribbons. I can see why a princess would need someone to help her dress. ;)

RedPat said...

I'd wear that one on the right in the top shot! Love it, Ciel.

Joli ? Euh non, pas à mon goût du tout mais c'est de l'Histoire !
