Jeanne Paquin, afternoon suit 1907. 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. © 2000–2012 The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
