Historicism --- The 1950's

On the left, a design by Yves St. Laurent for Dior in 1959. The bubble-skirt made a splash (is that a pun?) then, and has also been quite conspicuous today, although in slightly more deflated shapes of late. On the right, a bubble skirt by Rachel Pally available at Nordstrom.com.
