Illustration for a Herald Tribune Magazine editorial titled "Fashions Revive the '30s". According to the editorial's text, this ensemble by Ben Reig includes a "short-sleeve sheath of blond wool" with an "elbow-length cape collared lavishly in blue fox." (The editorial was published on January 6th, 1957, so it is uncertain why "07-01-65" is inscribed at the bottom of the illustration.)
