Created for the moon goddess in all of us, this piece is based on a stunning portrait of Georgiana Spencer, the Duchess of Devonshire, painted in 1781 by artist Maria Cosway. Spencer —who was the great-great-great-great aunt of the late Diana, Princess of Wales — was a well-known fashion icon, scandalous writer and political activist in her day. She commissioned Maria Cosway to paint her as the Goddess of the Moon from the poem The Faerie Queen. The result was a luminous, magical depiction of feminine strength. Our kimono jacket features Cosway’s masterpiece on the back, and a swirling moonlit sky on the front. It’s trimmed on the placket and sleeves in a custom-created celestial moon-and-stars pattern.
