Outlander Period Costumes

Outlander Period Costumes

The second series of Outlander is well under way  and we are seeing some wonderful period costumes from the 1740’s whilst Jamie and Claire are in Paris.
Costume designer Terry Dresbach is known for her love of period dramas, and she outdoes herself in the new season.
I am not sure that Claire’s costumes are all historically accurate but this can be forgiven as Claire (in the spirit of the story) would have collaborated with her dressmaker bringing design elements from the 20th century. The costume below is very “Dior” from the 1940’s, 200 year later but Claire’s “real” time.

Whilst Claire’s costumes are stunning what has really caught my eye this week is the embroidery on Master Raymond’s (the apothecary) coat.

I wonder what stunning costumes the next episode will bring?
