News - "Dark Star" Collection
The first spring steel armour presented by ArmStreet is lucky to be armour for women. The distinguished colour of this kit is achieved by blackening which not only prevents this lightweight metal from rusting but also adds a lot to its appearance. High quality natural leather, brass accents and accessories with etched brass and bright enamel are the finishing touches on top of the jaw-dropping armour. The whole series is absolutely functional and deadly beautiful.
The flawlessly articulated cuirass is inspired by Gothic armour. Anatomically shaped it is both comfortable and protective. And stunning, of course. Detachable tassets add some extra protection for your thighs.
We complemented this armour with a visorless sallet, commonly referred to as an archer’s sallet.
A unique piece of arms protection has an integrated articulated pauldron which is connected to the regular set of arm harness ingredients: rerebrace, elbow cop and vambrace. The excellent flexibility and ease of movement are achieved with leather and rivets. And a conical shape elbow cop adds to the striking appearance of the lady-warrior.
Flexibility and the incredibly low weight of this leg harness give you huge advantage on the battlefield or in a duel. The series of articulated plates connect two main pieces of this leg armor – the cuisses and the knee cop – to ensure you will be able to have smooth movements.
Have your hands covered with any of two shapes – both are extremely lightweight but as protective as our best-seller clamshells and finger gauntlets. Excellent flexibility provides you with the best possible grip over the handle of your sword or halberd.
Slightly fluted gorget features a well-articulated neck, meaning it is easy for you to stay both aware and protected while maintaining ease of movement. Blackened and riveted, the mail standard is made from mild steel and has a decorative scalloped edge of the leather collar.
All the abovesaid items combine in an absolutely stunning armour kit we are rightly proud of:
Want your appearance to be even more striking and dangerous? Take a look at the accompanying sword in scabbard and stiletto. We bet noone will dare to cross your way!
Arming belts are an absolutely new type of armour bearer for us. They distribute the weight of your leg armour and make it stay in place without restricting your movements at all. And they are pretty and stylish, right?
The short shirt is definitely a must-have for those engaged in fighting or any other active movements. Lightweight, neither bulky nor hindering your movements – perfect option to wear under your gambeson as it breathes and takes moister of your skin. Made of thin flax linen which is both comfortable to skin and wear-resistant with lots of tiny pleats to provide you extra freedom of movement and extra fresh air when the battle is over and the armour is off.
You should have heard about our bestselling two-piece gambesons from the Kingmaker series already. We are happy to introduce the full set of two piece gambesons in different materials for women now! We did a huge job to adjust the concept to the feminine stature and we are really proud of the patterns for these ones. We added extra appearance features, such as quilting that emphasizes curves and lines and embossing over the leather accents.
The bright spot over the deep black armour, this enameled laser cut brass livery collar – also referred to as a chain of office – shows everyone your status and importance.
As you might be used to already, accessories by ArmStreet combine period aesthetics with modern requirements – keep your stiletto and mobile phone in a stylish clutch at the medieval event or for the dining out. Though stiletto might be better left for medieval events only. :)
