Costumes of the Renaissance

From the royal residence of the Château de Blois, to the riverside Château de Montsoreau, the whole of the Loire Valley bears witness to the political rivalries and romances of the final days of the House of Valois.

Elegance, finesse and lavishness characterise these costumes: silk, velvet, puff-and-slash, pearls and jewellery adorn the doublets and jewellery of this period.
