‘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.
In the 27th Canto of Purgatorio, Dante has a dream of Leah and Rachel (an allegory for the active and contemplative life); Leah gathers flowers in the meadow and weaves together a garland. He sister, Rachel, is transfixed with contemplating her own reflection in the stream. The silver and gold roots of the Lia earrings grow and intertwine with each other, evoking the time of contemplation we have all been going through in 2020. This snapshot of growth is an invitation to create new and stronger roots as a community, to help each other through difficult times, and allow our stories to intertwine through the objects we adorn ourselves with.
