The evening suit made its appearance early in 1934 and was comprised of a dress and jacket or, in the interests of diversity, a dress, jacket and blouse. The jackets were often embroidered: here a stylised vegetal pattern enlivens an otherwise extremely sober ensemble. The evening suit was a runaway success at the 1937 International Exhibition of Art and Technology in Paris, where Jeanne Lanvin was the uncontested leader in the haute couture field. The cut of this model reminds us of her fondness for the bolero.
