LAUDANUM SILK DRESS-womenswear-A Child Of The Jago

LAUDANUM SILK DRESS

Regular price £495.00 Sale

Inspired by laudanum, the heady potion that satisfied the Victorian’s desire for romantic escapism, at once fatally addictive & utterly enchanting.

Elizabeth Siddal, an artist model for the Pre-Raphaelite painters, most famously captured in Millais’s Ophelia, was a regular and ardent enthusiast of the supposedly medicinal beverage. Ophelia is in stasis enveloped in the deepest green hues of flora which are encapsulated in our Laudanum Dress made from the finest Lyonnaise French Silk.
