The inspirations for this collection came from a certain urban vibe that is very strong in my style, as well as from a sense of rhythm. The first print on the collection, Despina, was in fact originally called Rhythm, and was a semi-finalist in a rug design contest. More about it at Press. The recognition of both inspirations took me back to an old book that I love, “Invisible Cities”, by Italo Calvino, hence the title of the collection and of each of its prints.
The patterns in this collection would make a remarkable statement in items such as:
- curtains and upholstery fabrics;
- scarves, umbrellas, handbags and other accessories;
