‘Over the past year I’ve been looking to Dante’s “Divine Comedy” for answers. Never before has the notion of being lost in a dark wood been a more apt metaphor for society right now.
The Roots is an invitation to reflect. What are our priorities? What matters the most to us? For me, the answer is people: my family, my friends, my team and the incredible people who make up the fabric of the Alighieri community. I wanted to use this collection to hold a mirror up to myself, and explore the roots of what makes us who we are.
The Roots Collection has been shot on these very people – a myriad of amazing women.' - RM.
Dante is seized by sleep in the hour "when Cytherea, who always seems aflame with fire of love, first shone on the mountain from the east."
Cytherea, also known as Aphrodite, is a goddess from Greek mythology. She represents beauty and fertility, and is known as being born from the sea. She is often depicted with myrtle. The bobbly texture of each handcrafted link are a representation of the fertile creativity that grows out of contemplation.
