SOUS L’OPERA Sous L’Opera is a celebration of ornamentation where more is most certainly more. Grand soirees of secret societies inspire a decadent approach with a feeling of velvet rope exclusivity. Brushed brass, velvet cushions, hand woven silk carpets, sumptuous crown molding, impressive chandeliers and intricate wall coverings ensures a seductive setting. Embellishments know no boundaries as long as they are metallic, oversized and in disarray while consuming surface texture. Golden threads INTERLINED extraordinary levels of intricacy from contemporary artistic motifs to looking to the past for Rococo inspired patterning. Decorative weaves INTEGRATE throughout the textiles leaving loose edges to add even another level of detailing. Sheen is revealed from plush velvets to watermark silks ADORNING an appearance of spray painted hues of metallic coloring. Surface textures TRITURATE into lavish details imitating plush textiles, gold leaf and SUBDIVINE surfaces characterizing the hand, look and touch for materials within Sous L’Opera.


ADORNING Densely decorated surfaces of perfectly crafted metalwork adorn any and all. More is more becomes the new standard with a focus on embellishments. Gold, in all casts, is paramount while unabashed, glamorous ornamentation is celebrated.

INTEGRATE Linked metal replaces the need for threading and becomes the foundation itself. Hung and strung in repeating patterns allow classic feminine silhouettes to take on a masculine aesthetic. This material will most often be draped directly onto the skin revealing hints of flesh or be the top surface area covering the strong base materials underneath.
