Vestments in the Lenten Season : 2

Purple Gothic vestments
In 2022, the Saint Bede Studio completed two sets of Gothic Revival vestments for an American customer.  One of these sets is illustrated in this post.  The chasuble is in the Studio's Saint Benet style, being a variant of the Gothic Revival form and closely based on the chasuble shape developed in the 1840s by AWN Pugin. 

These attractive vestments - intended for the Penitential Seasons - were made from a lovely brocade in a beautiful fuchsia-purple and were lined in a  crimson-red taffeta.

The ornament is formed from one of the Studio's braids re-worked from the designs of AWN Pugin by the Studio, in colours of blue and gold upon red; this braid is called Saint Austin.
