The new Ophelias

Often tragic heroins carried away by intense passions, the Pre raphaelite women embody mystery and distance. Sensual yet enigmatic and virginal they’re always reproduced immersed into untouched ethereal natural environments and from nature they find their strenght. Their big eyes and long hair caught in the sunlight make them look like dancing greek nymphs who belong to the earth more than the contemporary Victorian society. The “new Ophelias” embrace this mythical, legendary and dreamy world in a less decadent and antiquated and more contemporary way with flower prints and light dresses that ooze with tradition and authentic romance.
