With cold weather approaching, it might be a good time to consider updating your winter wardrobe. You might take inspiration, for example, from this fashionable winter ensemble from Chambéry, a city in eastern France and the historical capital of the Savoy region.
While we don’t know the identity of the young lady who is so elegantly and warmly attired, we do know that her portrait was made by an enterprising young man named Louis Chamussy, who opened the city’s first photography studio in 1859 when he was only twenty-one years old.
You’ll need a hoop to wear all these layers, of course. (Gloves are also recommended but not shown).
Dressing well for winter isn’t cheap, but when the mercury drops, you’ll be ready for a sleigh ride in the Alps! Before you head out on your winter adventures, stop by for a portrait at Louis Chamussy’s atelier de photographie à Chambéry.
