“Doctor, doctor, my mind flips to trimmings at the most inappropriate times”

Left, modern cotton with black metal bases
Right-vintage faded silk with beads

Here lies the extent of my obsession, I am watching the TV series “The Musketeers” (mainly for interior design inspiration) set in 17th c France but filmed mainly in unspoilt parts of the Czech Republic.
One of the heroes (I forget which, but wasn’t Aramis a 1970’s aftershave?) was peeling off his slightly Jean-Paul Gaultier inspired leather jacket to buckle his swash with a painfully corseted lady and what am I focussing on?? The muslin drapes artfully swathed behind him, edged in pom-pom fringing!!
