Marcel Rochas' Seagull Bird Dress

Once upon a time, in the year 1934, a couturier in Paris dreamt of an elegant little black dress. However, this was no ordinary dress. The dress in Marcel Rochas' mind was rather the opposite of ordinary. Attached to the front shoulder would be a seagull, one of its wings, particularly arched and curved forward. Perfectly running alongside any woman's face who had the brilliant opportunity to wear it. Like something straight out of a surrealistic painting, the dress was formulated, constructed and photographed for Harper's Bazaar- all in the year 1934. It's amazing what the past holds, isn't it?
