Titus Who? Act Three

 Misery may love company, but so does oddballery, so I was thrilled to find out I wasn't the only Titus Andronicus nerd amongst the Defarge designers.

There are two of us fascinated by body parts, madness, and mayhem. While I took it all rather literally, Mari Chiba took a more soulful tack and designed Lavinia's Gloves inspired by Titus's daughter, who gets her hands chopped off.

Beautiful cable details on the cuff and along the fingers.

Mari also designed a seductive sweater, Lady M.

Lovely neckline and the lace continues on the upper back.

Which just goes to tell you that great tragedy and great beauty can co-exist.
