    The Boué sisters had one of the most recognizable styles in fashion. They were known as the “Seagulls of Lace”. Their popularity was greatest in America, and they made 6 to 8 sea crossings every year from France to America.

    In 1899 the Paris house was founded by two sisters Madame Sylvie Montegut (born 1880) and Baronne Jeanne d’Etreillis (born 1881) both of who had the maiden name of Boué. In 1916, they opened their New York house.

    Madame Sylvie seems to have been the artistic spirit and Jeanne travelled around the world to gather inspiration and promote their clothes. The Boué sisters made great use of light-refracting silver and gold cloth, purchased from theatrical supply houses. They had their own Lame fabric made and embroideries with silver and gold threads. Another house signature was floral patterned lace. Embroidery was done in Venice on sheer organdie, to make entire “lingerie” dresses, popular throughout the 20′s. Dhoop-chaon taffeta was also used to make different hues shine at different times.

    Their perfume QUAND LES FLEURS REVENT was made at their ancient Chateau de Maison Rouges outside Paris. Their house closed around 1933.

    They were renowned for their romantic designs which often borrowed details from historical paintings. Their garments were often reminiscent of underwear, made of paper taffetas, silk organdies and ornately decorated.

    … One year ago, a terrible fire devastated the cabinet of curiosities, the room of entomology and most of the historical collections. But Deyrolle is rebuilt gradually and the first rooms are completely restored. Today, the shop is even more beautiful than ever, with many mammals of big sizes, splendid naturalized birds and natural curiosities as beautiful as astonishing.

    It was on the fourteenth of February, 1627, that the extravagant

    and splendid spectacle, le combat a la barriere, took place in

    Nancy, seat of the Dukes of Lorraine…The charm of this occasion has

    survived over three hundred years, not because of the splendor of its

    setting or the nobility of its principals but, rather, because the account

    of it was “enrichy des figures du sieur Jacques Callot”

    Did some proud father tuck this in his

    pocket to carry his snuff…?

    It was during the 18th century when snuff taking rose in popularity and came into widespread use throughout the world and throughout the social classes. The sound of sneezing was common in many a European snuff parlor and snuff boxes became the latest fashion accessory.

    Snuffboxes in the 18th century were highly decorated, often made of precious metals and emblazened with jewels. This latest fashion accessory was often changed every day to match the costumes of their owners and would be exchanged as gifts offered as diplomatic or military presents.

    The pelerine grew wider as it spread over the increasing shoulder line of gigot sleeves. It accentuated the shoulder width and made the waist of the 1830s look very small and was a popular feature of dress in the Romantic period.
