Charlotte Posner 5 Figures tote bag
Created exclusively for Historic Royal Palaces, this 100% cotton tote bag is spacious and stylish, with a vivacious design by the contemporary British female artist Charlotte Posner in her signature Pop Dolls style. This fabulous bag features a vibrant multicoloured image of five figures, posing against a white background on the front, highlighting the striking similarities of extravagant opulence, exaggerated silhouettes, and towering headdresses between the three contemporary couture outfits, and the male and female figures attired in Georgian court dress. The charmingly humorous addition of de rigeur sunglasses for all seamlessly integrates the celebrity look of then and now. Cleverly reversible, the back image displays a diva in the Spitalfields Mantua court gown on a deep blue background, complemented by a brilliantly vivid Charlotte Posner abstract patterned cotton lining, with a useful zipped pouch. A wonderfully collectable item to add a touch of VIP fashionista allure, this handy, reusable bag for life has plenty of space for all those necessary items and is perfect for shoppers, students, or day trippers.
The stunning Spitalfields Mantua, currently on display at the Crown to Couture exhibition, was made in the famous Spitalfields area of East London, where families of weavers created gorgeous brocaded silk. The fabric of the Spitalfields Mantua is very complex, with flower motifs woven into the brocaded silk rather than embroidered on to the highly decorative white silk background.
Part of the Crown to Couture range where the glittering world of the Georgian court comes head-to-head with the high glamour of the modern-day red carpet in a new exhibition at Kensington Palace.
