We recently visited the High Style exhibit at the Legion of Honor. All of the sartorial items are on loan from the Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection and are from 1910 to 1980. Here are some of our favorites:
Hand crafted shoes featuring antique lace
Evening ensembles with antique lace by Callot Soeurs, ca. 1913
Schiaparelli insect necklace
Evening ensemble by Sorelle Fontana, ca 1954 for the film Barefoot Contessa
Intricate Dior detailing
Tiger print Marie Antoinette style dress
The exhibit runs until July 19th. For more information visit the museum site here.
