Recently St. Augustine’s Church in Kingston ordered a new red chasuble and stole, a memorial gift designed by Adam Kochlin studios, and I was delighted to learn of another contemporary vestment designer. Adam Kochlin has studios in Canada, New Jersey and England, and a catalogue featuring vestments, paraments and banners may be obtained through the website. http://www.adamkochlindesigns.com/
Orders for catalogue items are sent to Sussex, New Jersey.
The designs are very original and feature multi-colored pieced work in beautiful Dupioni silks in colors of stained glass windows. The photograph to the left is featured on the current catalogue (volume 35). This particular chasuble is called “Jerusalem”. The chasubles are light-weight and sumptuous, with a great cut and originality of style and line. Visit the website to see more examples.
