Collection: Robe à la française

The robe à la française, a prominent fashion choice between 1750-1775, was a gown characterized by a bodice that fit closely in the front and loosely at the back. The front closing featured a decorative stomacher, and two wide box pleats fell from the shoulders to the hem at the back. This style of dress was known for its opulence, rich fabrics, and intricate decorations, often showcasing elaborate lace, bows, and ruffles. The silhouette included expansive skirts supported by panniers, creating a distinctive look that reflected the luxurious tastes of the era.
