The beach tunic in off-white polo jersey with a printed strip is a rare piece, unpublished in the collections of the Palais Galliera. It illustrates the diversity of traditional haute couture production, not limited to evening dresses, but capable of dressing women at any time of the day. The cut and study of these everyday clothes remain no less virtuosic, as evidenced by the construction of this beach tunic, originally worn with matching shorts.
