The Renaissance, the Revival of Learning epoch is the time of great breakthroughs and great wars, time of court cabals and depravity, time of knights and poisoners, time of tumultuous passions and sharp contrasts. The keen stilettos were concealing in the bouffant of ladies-in-waiting, the ardent hearts were disguised under the cuirasses of cavaliers, there was the cruelty masked by godliness, there was the treachery masked by smile. The palace air was heavy with the scents of perfumes and poisons, the dynasties alternated each other faster then the sovereigns alternated their mistresses and hired assassins were waiting around every corner.
What else can be said about the garb of these heroic, tragic and romantic days? About these refined ample curves, about the heavy pleats at the velvet curtains and brocade trains, about the obscenely close-fitting corsets and licentiously expensive bijoux? This style could be called the decadence if not reckon its unrivalled splendour, without the baroque pomposity and the rococo affectation.
The charm of those times inspired us to create the dress and the cloak in the spirit of the Renaissance. You can see such kind of dresses worn on Judith and Salome, Princesses and Amaryllises, Sinners and Saint Women at beautiful portraits by famous renaissance painter Lukas Cranach the Elder
The heavy velvet pleats, the scintillating brocade finishing, curled laces and silk tassels predicate it is designed for a luxurious life in the palace. This dress is our present for beauties of the Renaissance, who are deadly as the poisoned edge of stiletto and who are fragile and delicate as the flower.
This dress is extraordinary and beautiful combination of eleven yards of velvet, nine yards of cotton lining and more then twenty yards of trimming.
