Fancy dress, 1912 the Netherlands, De Gracieuse
Looks like (left to right) a flock of birds*, Dionysus or a grapevine and one of those newfangled flying contraptions.
* Possibly with real stuffed birds if the era is any indication. The outfit was cute at first but now it looks like a massacre.
Evening dresses, 1911 the Netherlands, De Gracieuse
I mentioned a while ago that late Edwardian dress got inspiration from the kimono. One of its other biggest influences was also the neoclassical styles of the early 1800’s. You can see that influence clearly on this plate.
