“To continue in one path is to go backward”
This garment is named after the legendary, Russian-born, composer, pianist and conductor Igor Stravinsky (1882 – 1971). He became internationally know through the music he composed for the Ballet Russes one of the pieces he composed is ‘The Rite of Spring’. Stravinsky’s score for this piece contradicted every rule about what music and dance should and can be. His avant-gardistic way of working is a great inspiration to us.
This garment is made from 100% antique French linen. All antique linens and its natural dye, vary slightly from each other. Some of the linen have embroidered initials on it, others can have beautiful mending.
