Alighieri is a collection of jewellery inspired by Dante Alighieri’s ‘Divine Comedy’; each piece corresponds to one of the poet’s 100 poems. As the pilgrim journeys through the realms of Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, he encounters mythical creatures, scraggy landscapes, and terrifying demons.
Nobody depicted Dante’s journey in the same way as Salvador Dalì did, in his illustrations of the “Divina Commedia”. Always looking to Dalì’s magical work, I began to look more at his singular style. Inspired by the way in which he wore his espadrilles in the French Riviera, in Paris, and on the rocks of Cadaques, we sought out the artisans in Barcelona who used to fabricate Dalì’s very shoes, and convinced them to work with us.
I wanted to create a pair that could be worn all summer, with a lion charm, wrapped around the ankle, like a talisman collected on your travels.
When you retire your espadrille for the summer, you can slide the talismans off the ribbon and add them to your necklace layers in the winter.
The Lion and Baroque Espadrilles is designed to bring you courage on your adventures, with the signature lion,a baroque pearl, mirroring the landscapes of the Inferno, as well as Dalì’s hometown.
