London Fog – The Tatler – Wednesday 30th November 1910

London Fog.

 

It is true, although all wish it were otherwise, that the London fog is essentially a home product, or at any rate the prerogative of the residents in the metropolis. As a consequence Miss Pleydel Young’s drawing on this page cannot fail to appeal to any wishing to go to a fancy-dress dance in a decidedly novel dress. It can appropriately be carried out in silver, gold, or copper tissue veiled with three different shades of grey ninon, or should a “regular” pea-soup or London “particular” be desired pale brown ninon could be substituted. The bracelets and other ornaments are of smoked mother- o’-pearl and black pearl pendants, the picture being completed by grey silk stockings and suede shoes. It should be noted that the “cloud” of ninon thrown over the head is attached to the bracelets and as a consequence does not incommode the wearer. Should pounds, shillings, and pence have to be considered art muslin could be employed instead of ninon. The same idea carried out in lighter shades would represent country mist or indeed, anything with a shadowed effect.
