Description

Swan Lake Cut-Out Jacket

This stunning jacquard jacket is reminiscent of the glorious lake scene in American Ballet Theatre’s production of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.

Its unique design features laser-cutout silhouettes of a graphic floral pattern revealing an underlying layer of the opposite color. Full-length arms can be pushed back for a more leisurely look, and the collar can be adjusted to gracefully frame the face. With a tailored waist that lends a flatteringly slender line, the jacket makes a fashionable addition to any wardrobe.

Please Note: Additional sizes and colors may be available at our store in Lincoln Center. Please call for information or to make an appointment. (212) 799-3100 Extension 2399.

  • Sizes: S - 4XL
  • 62 % cotton, 37% nylon
  • Available in white or black
  • Dry-clean only

 

History

Ballet

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
 
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
