Palmetto captures elements of jazz age glamour, 1920s luxe and the botanical fervour of the 19th century orchid hunters.
The starting point for the whole collection was a botanical document that evoked the inside of an orangery, with its exotic portrayal of rubber plants and passion flowers. The six glorious prints are presented on a mix of sumptuous silks and natural linens, many of which have been embellished with textured threads, foiling and metallics. They depict a cornucopia of etched blooms, as well as delicately drawn butterflies, dragonflies and ostrich feathers. Palmetto’s glorious prints are complemented by three über-glamorous weaves, accented with shine and shimmer.
