MET Museum "HEAVENLY BODIES" Black and Cream Bonded Wool "Florence" Hood
We are delighted to announce that this piece is featured in the MET exhibition "HEAVENLY BODIES" Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. On from May-October.
The “Florence” hood is a curious mix between a hat and a piece of body wear. Named as such because of Florence Nightingale, this piece is double bonded to give it rigidity, and is also fully reversible.
“Florence” slips over the head and is kept in place by the waistband that zips up through the back.
Fabricated here in a bonded black and cream technical cotton blend, and worn on our AW catwalk with the “Spray” dress. This item is also featured in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's gala exhibition in 2018, Heavenly Bodies, shown alongside the Spray dress and shoes for the full show look.Also available in:
A) Red and black tartan wool
