Jardin aux Lilas

Posted on

We have been enjoying Spring here in Portland for over a month now and the lilacs are out!  Back in New England, we wouldn’t get lilacs until the middle of of May, so this is a call for celebration!  This silk suit pays tribute to the Lilac, one of Spring’s most fragrant flowers.  The fabric is a lilac silk brocade woven with robin’s egg blue flowers, creating a striking color marriage. 

The slim sheath dress has a cummerbund and bow detail in Robin’s Egg Blue silk dupioni.  The cropped swing coat is fully lined in the same blue silk and sparkles with tiny crystal buttons and a Swarovski crystal brooch on the collar.

An extravagant flower hat tops off the ensemble.

This fashion is created by hand from pure silk fabrics.  Any irregularities in the weave of the fabrics are part of the appearance of natural silk and should not be considered flaws.

    • Thank you so much, Brenda. I was just reading your post about your perfumes and it was so inspiring! I bought a violet perfume at Fragonard when I was in Paris and I love the idea of using it to scent the fashions. I haven’t tried it yet, but I may. I will check out the Perfumed court. Sounds like it could be dangerous! xoxox H
