 This breathtaking Edwardian couture walking suit is in a class of its own. The detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern day haute-couture. The exquisite crisp-white linen embroidered cutwork is trimmed with needle-lace which gives the garment depth and texture. Linen is the oldest textile in continuous human use, appearing initially in ancient Mid Eastern civilizations. It is easy to understand its lasting popularity: linen garments remain crisp, clean and cool in the hottest of weather. I love the corded nipped-waist and lean,long cuffed-sleeves. This magnificent ensemble resonates powerfully today, not only because of its intrinsic beauty, but also because it is an important aesthetic artifact of the 1910's period.
