‘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.
The souls Dante encounters on his journey, throughout the "Divine Comedy", are often an invitation for him to look back at his past, at what formed him as a person and a poet. In the 26th Canto of Purgatory, he encounters Guido Guinicelli, a Provencal poet he refers to as "the father of me and of others my betters". In this beautiful moment, Dante pays homage to his forefathers; he describes Guido's poetry as "sweet and graceful rhymes of love". The links of the Rhymes of Love choker and bracelet are made up of little boughs, representing the way in which we are all connected to a past. They are a commentary on the beauty of considering our roots, as we look to our future.
