Curious Cabinets is an exploration into the dreams and desires of women, and how they have broken through the boundaries of society using fashion flowers. It focuses on 3 women, the first of which is Anastasia.
For the Anastasia cabinet we used a golden colour often used in the Art Nouveau period by Alfons Maria Mucha. The floral design makes use of a fine, green asparagus fern, depicting the mist of a dream state. This is complemented by the deep red of a rose. With the design being enclosed in the cabinet, but breaking out through a crack in the glass, the flowers dance freely along the top in wild abandon. Anastasia is a very upstanding member of society, who struggles with what is expected of her and really wants to break free. Our 100% silk Kimono shows off this luxurious design perfectly, and you can buy the design as a scarf.
