The Style

From bat-wing collars for the gentlemen to leg-o’-mutton sleeves for the ladies, the fashions of the Belle Époque were elegant, flamboyant and delightful. Sleek, sensuous and curvaceous lines were perfectly complemented with large-rimmed hats and tall toppers. Accessories included parasols and canes, umbrellas and gloves.
