designers Inés and Iván of La Casita de Wendy have just launched their new collection Sisterhood at Paris Fashion Week. the entire collection has been produced by traditional artisans & craftsmen in their native Spain, using natural fabrics such as wool, silk and cotton. for this collection they also worked with natural dyes for some of their handmade scarfs. that huge patchwork scarf in the first picture is un. real. also love that beautiful thick embroidery and of course that lush illustrative dress.
Our new collection is inspired on XIX century women such as Lizzie Siddal, Georgie Macdonald, Effie Gray, Jane Morris or Julia Prinsep. They were models, writers, painters, actresses,… and they also played a role as muses of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. They all shared the same original ideas about life and lived as outsiders in a very male society dominated by a very strict point of view and narrow traditions. This is the way in which we wanted to honour all these mysteriouswomen who were part of one of the most important European art movements. It is also a homage to all the women who had lived in the shadows.
