Vestments for the Advent Season

Adjacent is pictured another the new set of vestments recently completed by the Studio in the Saint Philip Neri style.

A brocade in a deep shade of violet was used for these vestments. The ornamentation - according to the Roman style - was formed from the same brocade in a shade of crimson, outlined with a braid in colours of burgundy, red and grey. The absence of any gold ornament was intended as a design feature of these vestments.  The chasuble is lined in deep-red taffeta intended to support the colour of the orphrey.

The vestments described in this post were commissioned - together with a number of other vestments - for a Monastic Community in Brazil.
