A little over a month ago I introduced Vintage Ad Fridays with Joy Perfume by Jean Patou. Patou was a fashion house in Paris before becoming a perfumier. Out of curiosity, I’ve been researching some of his fashions and wanted to share with you some of my favorites.
The work with sequins, beads, and gemstones is intricate and beautiful. I just love, love, love the green cape. Wouldn’t it be fabulous wearing it to a Broadway show or the opera? It and the gowns just scream glamour. I like that there is a variety in his work. Some of the clothes are pretty, everyday wear and some are for a night out on the town. Jean Patou began with a sportswear line and grew his fashion house from that point. I hope you have enjoyed these gorgeous frocks!
