Poiret : Paul Poiret, 1879-1944 by Yvonne Deslandres( Book )

"Paul Poiret remains unchallenged as the greatest creator of haute couture in the early years of this century. Revolutionizing the feminine shape by freeing it from the corset, he offered women simple, elegent yet opulent apparel, cut from the finest fabrics. Taking his inspiration from Africa and the Orient, Poiret created dresses which reflect the gorgeous detail and rich colours of these exotic cultures." --Book jacket

Les robes de Paul Poiret by Paul Iribe( Book )

5 editions published in 1908 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frappé par la façon dont Iribe dessine les femmes, Paul Poiret fait appel à lui pour réaliser cet album "représentant mes robes, et imprimé sur très beau papier d'Arches ou de Hollande, [qui] serait adressé à titre d'hommage à toutes les grandes dames du monde entier". En totale opposition avec les gravures de mode de l'époque, Iribe dessine les modèles de côté ou de dos. Autre originalité, seuls les personnages féminins bénéficient de la couleur, donnant ainsi à leurs vêtements un relief saisissant. Les couleurs sont appliquées au pochoir, procédé utilisé depuis fort longtemps dans l'imagerie d'Epinal et perfectionné par Jean Saudé vers 1895. Le décor entourant les modèles est dessiné à la plume avec minutie : tableaux, miroirs, petits meubles et fenêtres laissant apercevoir une nuit étoilée. Il imite les gravures au burin. Le retentissement de la publication de cet album est considérable. Il marque assurément une rupture avec les gravures de mode de l'époque et constitue le point de départ d'un style nouveau. "La gazette du bon ton", "Le journal des dames et des modes", "Modes et manières d'aujourd'hui" vont naître de ce regard inédit
