Fall-Winter 2022 is coming!

Hello my beautiful friends!
I'm so excited to share with you the Fall-Winter creation process! ♥ 
I confess it hasn't been a smooth flow of creativity as you can imagine. I went in full armadillo-on-the-floor mode at some point, not knowing what to do next! 
However, YOU came to the rescue and filled our questionaire, providing me with great insights! THANK YOU! ♥ So let's begind with revealing the process!


Sustainable Fabric swatches

The fabric

First I started looking at swatches. I confess that this season I was tempted to swith from Linen to a certified linen blend. I also considered a wool, but it is not vegan and sustainable, so I gave up on that. Finally, I decided to make it all in 100% Linen, but because it is Winter, I thought I'd increase the weight. 


The inspiration

Dark Cottagecore Outlander Pre-Raphaelite inspiration board
The inspiration started when the new season of Outlander launched and I was, of course, OBSESSED! I am all about Scottish claire and the dark moods of Scotland. Then, I my partner and I decided to take a vacation to see his family in the UK, and guess what? This angles of a man is taking me to fulfill my dreams of frolicking in the Scotish highlands and I am dying!
To match my inspiration, I wanted to add texture and aesthetics beauty, so I looked into the Pre-Raphaelite paintings, which would bring the Dark Cottagecore mood I was looking for. 
So add in the blender: Outlander, Scotland, Pre-Raphaelite Paintings and Dark Cottagecore and we will have our second collection:

The Designs

As a startup, there isn't much room for big creativeness and changes from the first development, as believe me, it gets very expensive quickly! So, I took the first collection as a learning and moved forward with a new wintery version of it, which I am SO EXCITED about! 

So here are the pieces we'll have:



Top and dress set design and long linen dress design


 The colours 

For solid colours, the majority liked this colour palette. 

Cinnamon, "Tealish" dark green and Black. 

Fabric colour swatches

I personally love this palette. It is all down to budget now, so I decided to keep Cinnamon and Black as core, and perhaps to a Christmas drop of the green. Thoughts?


The Pre-Raphaelite print

I wanted to keep the tradition of featuring a hand-made print eevry season. To bring the pre-raphaelite mood I wanted some dark and bold florals so for this print, I hand-painted with watercolours some tulips and pieced together some painting flowers for the ultimate oil-painting texture. I think it will look fabulous on the linen.

Right now, my production partners are sampling some of these beautiful pieces and I CAN'T WAIT to show you the final pieces! For now I'll leave you with some BTS of my working the new neckline and other details!
