Fortunys coats take their inspiration from a myrid of references,renaissance ,persian,arabic .These are often elaborately decorated in historical motifs surprisingly unrelated to the cut itself.
The hand stenciling is done with real silver metallic pigments aged to a mellow, burnished color. Fortuny built his stenciled pieces layer upon layer, until he achieved the effect of antique brocade. © 1stdibs.com, Inc. 2011
