Curious Cabinets is a collection of fashion concept ideas looking at the dreams and desires of 3 women, and the challenges society’s expectation puts on them.
Each botanical installation cabinet is created in the Art Nouveau style, which is typified by the organic flowering shapes and forms contrasting with geometrical shapes. Natural materials, muted but strong colours and elegant female forms unite to give the era a visual vocabulary.
We have not re-interpreted this era, but have worked with its influence in mind, as inspiration for the style and colour of the cabinets.
Each of our cabinets are named after an inspiring woman. From these cabinets, we have created 3 gorgeous prints.
Marie could be a new mother challenged by her new lifestyle, and how that might change her in the short term; she’s a bit naive, feisty and very young.
Alice is a very modern woman and could be received as being arrogant but she’s self-assured, confident and intensely comfortable with who she is.
Anastasia is a rather classy lady who struggles with society’s expectations of her as a married lady from a certain era.
