Dawn of Purple and Gray: choice of clothing

 

dawn - clothing

15 days till the release of Dawn of Purple and Gray, 1st book in the Hyllethan Gifts series!

Today I thought of writing a few lines about the clothing worn by Shael and the rest of the characters. In fact, one way I hinted at the difference between Shael and the Inlanders, and in later books between the peoples of the Inner Lands, Hylletha and Dragonia is through their choice of clothing.

I’ve always found Amedeo Preziosi’s watercolours fascinating, and those, as well as Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with the Pearl Earring influenced the clothing worn by Shael and the people of the Inner Lands.
