Dress, Lucien Lelong (French, 1889 - 1952): ca. 1926, silk crepe-de-chine, silk looped fringe. "...Lelong introduced in 1925 the concept of "kinetic design"-practical clothing for the modern woman that stressed freedom of movement. The principle is embodied in this afternoon dress with its full paneled skirt, lowered waistline, and decorative fringe, which swings as the wearer moves. Lelong was very popular with American women..."
