Chemise
1920s

Rita de Acosta Lydig (1880-1929), a noted beauty and style icon of the early 20th century, owned this nightgown. Many of de Acosta Lydig’s garments feature lace panels or trim which likely came from her extensive personal collection. The Valenciennes lace on the bodice is exceptionally fine and worked in a manner that gives very detailed definition to the flower parts. The ribbon straps and inclusion of the owner’s name in openwork embroidery are additional signs of high-quality custom craftsmanship.
