This collection is inspired by Celtic artefacts from the Late Iron Age (5th to 1st century BC). La Tène period is the culture of the central European Celts (also referred to as the Gauls in some texts) and named as such after the archaeological site in Switzerland, La Tène (near Lake Neuchâtel) where evidence of such culture was first discovered. The Hallstatt period (preceding La Tène period) applied geometric forms to their ornament, while the typical La Tene style was characterised by S-shapes, spirals and round patterns. The movement based forms of Celtic art such as the triskeles were developed during this period.
This collection in pure linen, with silk accents and finishes, uses modern appliqué and hand embroidery, on a palette of natural colours for a light summer feel.
