The Age of Innocence (1993) - Michelle Pfeiffer as Ellen Olenska wearing a ruby red ballgown. The corseted bodice has beaded applications, off-shoulder neckline and gathered sleeves; the skirt is made of printed taffeta, paired with the same fabric in solid colour.

The outfit was completed by white opera gloves, ruby jewellery and a black feathered fan.

The costumes were designed by Gabriella Pescucci and made by Sartoria Tirelli.


Fragments of Realities.

Paintings by Italian artist, Marco Tirelli.

Tirelli’s abstract paintings suggest a metaphysical time and place. In explaining the roots of his work, Tirelli speaks about growing up in Rome: “I never felt entirely a part of it. And this has had a big effect on my work because I’ve always sensed a tension between places […] and what lies unseen beyond.” His monumental canvases are rendered with a soft sfumato and the highlights and shadows are created using a pointillist technique with airbrushes.
