Costumes of the 17th century

Within the historical provinces of Touraine and Poitou, the Cardinal Richelieu constructed a luxurious château and a model city for his courtiers and servants where classicism, rationality and political engagement define the era.

Lace-embroidered collars, plumed hats, short and minimal doublets, robes and jewellery lead the dances and elegantly bring us into the early modern period. A barbershop is recommended to complete the outfit.
