Nightgown and Bed Jacket, Madame Watrigant, c. 1930

Nightgown and Bed Jacket, Madame Watrigant, c. 1930

silk, l 135cm More details

This ensemble was inspired by the nightgown and bed jacket worn in 1929 by the – then famous – movie actress Jeanette MacDonald in The Love Parade, which was directed by Ernst Lubitsch. Mrs Brusse had this outfit copied after having seen the film. The bed jacket, however, differs from the prototype in the movie, which is trimmed with ostrich feathers.
