For our fifth birthday collection, I wanted to explore the cathartic role of water and tears. Inspired by Montefeltro’s one salty lacrimetta, Roman tear catchers, and the symbolic role of rivers and oceans running through the Commedia, I set out for a salty pink lake (the backdrop for the scene) in the depths of Western Australia, blown glass vessels in tow.
Having created Alighieri during a somewhat dark time in my life, the collections have always been tinged with a sense of melancholy. As I turn 30 and the brand turns 5, “No More Tears” is a celebration. Creating these Modern Heirlooms and telling these stories has been my joy and catharsis - much like Buonconte’s lacrimetta.
This collection is a treasure trove of armour: little emblems of protection, in the form of sculptural hands and Sicilian bleeding hearts, along with gilded chain vests, belts with small tools clipped on, and of course, glass vessels, to fill with adventures to come, and the occasional salty tear.
