The autochromes of Salon du goût français (Exhibition of French Fashion) form an exceptional collection, which show the French luxury industry from 1921 to 1923. These photographs show us the trends of fashion between the two World Wars. Clothing, tableware, furniture, automotive and toys, they reveal the power and inspiration of French haute couture, jewelery, jewelry. The autochrome became the ideal way to promote the different collections in France and abroad. The dimensions of the plates allow the entire collection to be loaded on board a cruise ship bound for America and on different continents.
