Ode to Lillie Langtry Cape
Midnight black silk velvet lined in raspberry currant velvet, it is a tribute to a woman who lived a large life. At a time when society preferred women to diminish and be a beautiful setting for others to admire, this was challenge with every pore of Lillei Langtry's being. Men followed her and women secretly wish to be her bravely outlandish joy of jumping without a net. How marvelous a life is that!
The cape is embellished with chains dangling hand made copper and brass art coins, silken flowers trimmed in a golden patina, and Tibetan lamb edging here and there to catch an admirers eye.
Long, elegant and sweeping, the hand made work of art can be purchased for $1,800.
The Cimarron Hat
!00X beaver natural edge hat with tobacco deer hat band, copper bead and stampede string, lined in silk brocade.
About Lillie Langtry...
She made advertising socially acceptable, toured
with her own acting company, started a winery
in America and was a successful owner of race
horses. She amassed millions and spent with
equal extravagance, the center of attention
wherever she went.
Intelligent, humorous, fascinating to both
men and women, she was admired and idolized
by people from all walks of life. At home in
the company of Princes and Presidents, artists
and poets or simply alone in her garden, she
was envied, respected, adored and lampooned,
her fame spanned over half a century.
Throughout her life she left a trail of broken
hearts. A controversial figure who challenged
Victorian society's attitudes to women, but was
A unique individual who was years ahead of her time.
