Vestments in the Sixteenth Century Style

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

A Baroque damask in shades of red and gold was used for these vestments. The ornamentation - in the Roman style - was formed from panels of red silk, augmented with a narrow galloon in straw-gold and dark red, outlining it. The chasuble is lined in 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.
