The Garden of Secrets

Welcome to the Garden of Secrets.
Secret Garden, Garden of Eden, Garden of the Hesperides … There are many legendary gardens, all places of delight; but also of secrets, hidden or lost.
To walk in this mysterious and wonder-filled place you need something equally sumptuous and sensual.

So I have prepared viscose jerseys that are soft and fluid like spring water, pure linen that wrinkles and moves like newly opened petals, fine cotton and shantung silk that capture and reflect the light like shiny spring leaves.
The prints are the careful work of three women designers and masterfully portray the encounters you might have by entering the Secrets Garden: exotic plants, lotus flowers, peacocks, snakes, pheasants …

Dress with the garden and its secrets, wearing them like the keeper of an enchanted door.
The world needs more than ever someone who brings wonders and mysteries with them.
