Drawing on childhood inspiration, this fashion-art coat pays homage to Romare Bearden’s imaginative portrayal of Circe from “The Odyssey.” Embracing Bearden’s re-imagining of the classic tale with African-American characters, the design features a striking depiction of Circe as a powerful black woman surrounded by mystical animals and exuding calm defiance.
The coat, draped in red wool crepe fabric, is a sheath silhouette with a round neckline and bell sleeves. Circe’s presence on the coat invokes a sense of empowerment and cultural resonance. With each wear, this garment invites a deeper exploration of mythology and heritage, bridging the gap between ancient narratives and contemporary expression.
