Apple Park Decorated With Rainbow Colors in Celebration of Steve Jobs and Formal Opening of Campus
Apple Park is decorated with the colors of Apple's classic rainbow logo today in celebration of the formal opening of Apple's new headquarters, and as a tribute to its late co-founder Steve Jobs, who helped conceptualize the spaceship-like design of the main building on the campus prior to his death.
Apple yesterday held its formal opening of Apple Park, including a concert on the rainbow stage at the center of the campus. Lady Gaga performed at the event, with Apple Park employees taking to Twitter and Instagram to share photos and videos.
The principal material for this robe is a pale lavender silk satin damask with roundels containing orchids, chrysanthemums, and other flowers. The wide borders accentuating the sleeves, neck, side, and hem are black silk satin embroidered with floral and butterfly motifs using silk floss of many colors. Each sleeve is also embellished by an additional decorative band made from white silk satin and embroidered with multicolored silk floss. The narrower bands of blue silk edging are also decorated with floral and butterfly motifs. Informal robes of this kind were worn at the late Qing court by imperial concubines and senior ladies-in-waiting.
