Hermès Trompe-l'œil Dress 1952

Robert Dumas-Hermès, who most famously introduced the silk scarf, was the chief executive of French fashion house Hermès at the time these dresses were made by Herbert Sondheim, a high quality dress manufacturer in New York. They're pretty and romantic like a little girl's dream come true.
