“To continue in one path is to go backward”
– Igor Stravinsky
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. During a short period of time Stravinsky and his family have been staying at Coco Chanel’s home in Paris where he wrote two of his pieces. His avant-gardistic way of working is a great inspiration to us.
This garment is made from 100% antique French linen. All antique linens vary slightly from each other. Some shades are whiter, some darker, some coarser. Some will have embroidered initials on it, others will have beautiful mending.
At our Manufacturing Studio we will do our best to make sure only the good parts of the antique linens are used. In some cases our Recovery Studio will make small repairs to the old material to make sure we can upcycle as much materials as possible.
