If you know nothing about it, maybe don’t comment? I’m pretty sure the museum has done more research into this photo than your 5 seconds of consideration. The description of the photograph on the source OP linked says *circa* 1930 and specifically states that this type of autochrome process was not used after 1935. While I agree with your estimation of the popular early 30s silhouette, French fashion was much ahead of American style and I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see typical 40s fashion emerging earlier in Europe.

Also from the museum page:

>This recently acquired autochrome is unusual in that the subject matter is extremely modern: two women, two « friends », who are not visibly posing and are dressed quite daringly. Their haircuts are modern, their clothing is free and dares to reveal some skin, the glasses are an aside; it was a time of a certain freedom for women with the emergence of women’s fashion and the discarding of corsets and constraints. Women’s bodies freed themselves from bourgeois limitations.
