Dress with Hobble Skirt, Antoinetta Francisca Helena Mulder, c. 1911 - c. 1912

silk, l 141.0cm More details

The long, straight silhouette introduced by the Paris fashion designer Paul Poiret in 1906 reached its zenith in 1909 with the hobble skirt. It was so narrow that women could only walk with small shuffling steps. This dress is made of three layers held together by a satin belt. The large flower corsage is typical of fashion up to the First World War.
