Officiel De La Couleur Des Industries De La Mode No. 6 Hiver 1952 Plate 11
Vintage L'’Officiel de la Couleur French fashion design catalog page is rare and hand painted ( see below)and has a piece of attached ( though can be lifted) cellophane over colored paper intended to show the color choices of the material.These are extremely rare and would be beautiful framed in groups. Interesting mix of patterns and colors, like Duvet De Pigeon?
These are, in part, the comments from the original instructions from the publication in which these prints were found: "Pursuing its campaign for supreme Parisian elegance, L'’Officiel de la Couleur continues to be published in limited editions of numbered copies, which is the proper course for a publication which is not intended for the general public. L’Officiel de la Couleur is the first magazine in the world to be collected by bibliophiles. Each one of its colors, it will be remembered, is painted in by hand, and this is what gives it its value.”
