While Paul Poiret is known for popularizing trends like the hobble skirt and the kimono coat, he also contributed to a little-known theatrical production in 1917. On October 13, 1917, WWD ran a review of the designer’s fabulous costumes and sets for the Theatre Michel’s Revue by Rip, in which the main character visits an alchemist who gives him a time machine. The review elided all comment on the script or the acting, noting that it is “only sufficient to mention the structure to explain that it gives to Poiret the occasion to develop his best efforts.”
