“She has new bodices made, cloaks, a quantity of lace trimmings, of ribbons and flowers, all manner of things! And all this to go to the country!”
La Villegiatura, 1761
Join me for a languid summer in the French countryside…antique gold, toile and tapestries inspire the textures and details for the collection. The juxtaposition of gilded refinement and relaxed country living brings Parisian luxury to a rambling garden party in full bloom. An homage to the decadence of 18th century France, contrasted with the soft breezes of a warm summer night…kick off your heels, have a glass of wine, and live!
