De­rived from toile de Jouy, a type of printed cal­ico with elab­o­rate flo­rals, fig­ures, or land­scape de­sign on a light back­ground. Its ori­gins can be traced back to the idyl­lic com­mune of Jouy-en-Josas, in the south-west­ern sub­urbs of Paris. “Maria Grazia Chi­uri’s di­aphanous dresses this cou­ture sea­son high­lighted the Dior ate­lier’s toile, and paid homage to the mai­son’s mains d’or and ex­act­ing tai­lored cuts.” “This cou­ture sea­son at Dior, the mai­son’s ate­lier ex­alted a Braque­nié toile with a tech­nique in­spired by tat­ting. Pe­tite gilded bows brought life to the pas­toral mo­tifs of Braque­nié’s toile, which re­quired an aver­age of 800 to 900 me­tres of silk thread.”
