There is nothing like the saturated hue of purple, it’s so luxurious.
Did you know that it wasn’t always available to the masses? Previous to the 1850’s, naturally sourced purple dye was worth it’s weight in gold. Being this expensive, it was really only accessible to the wealthy aristocrats and royals.
But then, in 1856 while searching for a cure for malaria, chemist William H. Perkin discovered a way to produce the colour synthetically. *TA-DAAA*→purple for the people!
And according to Lorde, we may never be royals, but at least we can dress like them!

Welcome to our butter cream filled window with a hint of red current. The centre Chinoiserie jacket is like no other! It dates from the late 60’s early 70’s and is encrusted with seed beads and prong set rhinestone dragons and phoenixes. It came to our attention that the dragon and phoenix couple is a Chinese symbol for good luck and harmonious marriage. Taking into consideration the red colour, we soon then realized that this originally was a wedding jacket. Fashion archaeologists ‘r’ us.
