Gabriella Slade’s gorgeous set incorporates art nouveau arches flecked with the brass and burnished gold tones of a Klimt painting. Her costumes are no less lavish, featuring louche silks, bold patterns, and colour palettes which echo the characters’ personalities. Each couple’s outfits complement one another tastefully, while Lady Bracknell’s lilac and yellow ensemble is as striking as her overbearing demeanour.
