It is 1914, just before World War I and here is an elegant lady with her greyhound (costumed by Chanel). Notice how clean & modern the lines are. Yes that is a large muff (in case you were wondering.) But what about that skirt? I first heard about it from Grandma Steffi who turned 20 in 1914, and it had a special nickname. My grandmother referred to it as a hobble skirt.
