Story
‘Over the past year I’ve been looking to Dante’s “Divine Comedy” for answers. Never before has the notion of being lost in a dark wood been a more apt metaphor for society right now.

The Roots is an invitation to reflect. What are our priorities? What matters the most to us? For me, the answer is people: my family, my friends, my team and the incredible people who make up the fabric of the Alighieri community. I wanted to use this collection to hold a mirror up to myself, and explore the roots of what makes us who we are.

The Roots Collection has been shot on these very people – a myriad of amazing  women.' - RM.

In the 27th Canto of Purgatorio, Dante has a dream of Leah and Rachel (an allegory for the active and contemplative life); Leah gathers flowers in the meadow, her hands are the focus as she weaves together a garland. He sister, Rachel, is transfixed with contemplating her own reflection in the stream. The intertwining roots of the Lia ring grow into the abstract shape of a mirror. It evokes the time of contemplation we have all been going through in 2020. The interpretation of reflecting and growing are an invitation to create new and stronger roots as a community, to help each other through difficult times, and allow our stories to intertwine through the objects we adorn ourselves with.
