Materials are metal focused withColour palette is emerald green, The pared dropThe pared spring summer range draws its inspiration from Morroco in the late 60s & early1970s. This time and era evokes excitement of the exotic and the danger of the unknown.
“ I was attracted to the way of life in Morocco, the view of the rooftops, the seclusion of the riads, the relaxed lifestyle of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge in Jardin Majorelle. I love the heat, colours and atmosphere of the souk as well as the wandering spirit amongst the winding streets of Marrakesh with a little 70’s disco fever thrown in.”
The movie The sheltering sky which touches on the isolation and unchartered territory of travel in the desert was also another inspiration in the range.
