The Bar Suit was glorified by Willy Maywald's famous photograph. It was part of the New Look collection. The Suit was a cream shantung morning coat with rounded tails that closely followed the curves of the bust. The large black pleated skirt gave it a swinging gait that had not been seen before. The suit was part of his manifesto collection to bring back woman's ultra-femininity and opulence.
I was asked to paint this infamous suit for a custom portrait. Below is the portrait done in gouache paints.
