Doublet made of brocade velvet
inspired by the painting
"Adoration of the Magi"

 
 

Period: 1440, Italy

This doublet of the early Italian Renaissance was inspired by Domenico Veneziano's painting "Adoration of the Magi".

This has been commissioned work for a member of the Vienna dance ensemble for historical dance. Typical of the Quattrocento is the unique tubular pleating that cascades down from the chest to the silk-trimmed hem. The bouffant upper sleeves are equipped with slashes at the front and with cuffs at the wrist allowing the wearer to adjust to different temperatures.



Likewise the ornament – a stylized pomegranate motif – is typical of the 15th century. Woven in two different gold tones the ornaments actually appear to be stitched due to the special weave. The belt has been stitched by hand.


The headgear made of velvet and 'fur' was taken from a drawing of the same epoch.
