Dancing dress, made of black crêpe georgette, completely embroidered with sequins in silver, grey, gold, rose, blue and black, Paris, around 1925. The sequins made of plastic material make the dress surprisingly light.

Interwoven Socks: Saturday Morning Post, Illustration by J. C. Leyendecker, c. February 11th, 1922. Interwoven Stocking Company. Personal Collection.

Yesterday, a near century-old Leyendecker advertisement found it’s way to my door two days early, in a rainstorm.

The red of the smoking jacket was brighter than ever - my grins echoing those of this jubilant gentleman in his new pair of socks.

Don’t worry, a full color digitization will be on it’s way in no time.

Patience, Internet.
