Robe à la française, ca 1780 France, KCI
The mannequin displays a hairstyle that was often the subject of ridicule in contemporary fashion caricatures.  A similar hairstyle, possibly the one that inspired this stylist, was called the “Coiffure de l’indépendance ou Le triomphe de la liberté” (Hairstyle of Independence, or The Triumph of Freedom), which was worn by Marie-Antoinette to celebrate France’s first naval victory over Britain during the American Revolutionary War.
