Saint Philip Neri vestments

A priest from the Archdiocese of New York commissioned the Saint Bede Studio for a set of vestments according to the style now referred to as Saint Philip Neri.  In this instance, the vestments were made from an English ecclesiastical brocade and lined in gold-coloured dupion silk.  The ornament, according to the traditional style of Rome, was formed simply from braids running in parallel lines.

Father James Ferreira is shewn in the adjacent photograph, wearing the vestments.
