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. 

Dante compares the Ancient Forest "green and dense" with "fluttering boughs" to the Adriatic coast near Ravenna, where Aeolus (King of the Wind) unleashes the Sirocco. Sirocco is a warm wind that travels from North Africa towards Italy; whilst it can be powerful, and sometimes frightening, the Sirocco pendant is a reminder that these winds allow seeds to be dispersed, and new roots to grow.
