[larger view]  A photo of the author's beloved Edwardian grandmother, Marga, wearing her platinum sautoir and lorgnette (1901).  Poiret was instrumental in eradicating the "S" silhouette which tortured the bodies of Edwardian women. He said: "Women looked as if they were towing barges against the wind."!  His graceful clothes were either high waisted or loose-fitting tunics, sans corsets or belts. His beaded sautoirs with tassels became a classic Art Deco accessory.  (courtesy of Ginger Moro)
[larger view]  Marga as an 80 year old matron.  Emily Marga Smith was one of the first white women to travel 700 miles up the Nile. Grandpa was the doctor for the men building the Aswan Dam. (Marga dared me to follow in her footsteps when I was barely out of my teens while I was living in Paris and I did.  But I digress.)  Marga wore high lace Edwardian collars with pearl sautoirs and her vintage platinum and diamond jewelry until she died, a feisty 90 year old. She'd been out waltzing the night before.  (courtesy of Ginger Moro)
[larger view]  Vintage Edwardian belts with elaborate belt buckles front and back which illustrate the Edwardian style.  Photo of the top 2 buckles of the green suede belt (fore and aft) are Art Nouveau design with faux emerald stones and marcasites.  The Edwardian grayish green leather belt is cut steel (1910).  Illustrated in the author's book, pg 17, France chapter.  (courtesy of Ginger Moro)
[larger view]  A feather aigrette as illustrated by Georges Lepape for Paul Poiret, France, 1910. Illustrated in "European Designer Jewelry", page 19. The Edwardians wore aigrettes sprouting from diamond brooches. The style was per-petuated by the flappers in the Twenties, thanks to Poiret and Diaghilev's costumes for the Ballets Russes.
