Redingote Velvet dress by Jean-Philippe Worth Haute Couture - Paris Circa 1923

Circa 1923


Redingote evening dress in chimney sweep brown velvet embroidered in a champagne color by the famous Maison Worth. Ample straight cut, long sleeves, high collar buttoned Russian style, finely gathered in three rows at the bottom of the hips. A nod to the 19th century with the row of ball buttons in a military style and pagoda cuffs! The embroidery on cream Georgette crepe superimposes rows of sequins and silver threads embroidered in chain stitch in horizontal bands. These Ballets Russes-style ethnic motifs are set in a silver camaieu of tubular glass beads, silver cabochons and grey marcasite beads. No lining and silver damask label mentioning Worth. No flaws. Very good colour and condition.

Size: French size 38-40. Height 112cm, shoulders 38cm, chest 92cm, waist 82cm, hips 102cm, sleeves 59cm.

Jean-Philippe Worth (1856-1926) was the son of Charles Frederick Worth, a pioneer of French Haute Couture and a famous fashion house that operated from 1858 to 1954. After spending a few months studying with the painter Camille Corot, who gave him a certain artistic sensibility, Jean-Philippe Worth joined Worth in 1872. Jean-Philippe took over his father's business in 1895, and during the Belle Epoque, the famous firm was at the height of its fame. Worth's toilets were known as the most inventive and fashionable in the world.
