Think figure-hugging slinky clothes,
Snakeskin clutch bags, pointed toes,
Plunging backs on evening dresses
Voluminous “Jane Harlow” tresses.
Perky hats perched on the side
A graceful silk and satin bride
Fur-lined collars – the real thing
With knitted swimwear – really ‘in”.
The Thirties make a come-back here
Three floors in a glamour sphere
In Brussels Lace-Costume Museum*
Opened this week – go and see ‘em!
