‘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.
"And now, along with the pre-dawn splendours that,
rising, become more welcome to the traveller, as, returning,
he lodges a little nearer home,
the shadows all around were being put
to flight and my sleep with them."
As sleep is chased away and shadows are put to flight, Dante compares the delight of the pre-dawn splendours, to the joy of an eager traveller returning home. The Eager Traveller Necklace embodies the magical hours just before dawn, when the possibilities of the day are endless.
