LOURO COLLECTION

This collection has as it’s starting point with the sculpture “Apollo and Daphne” by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Legend has it that Apollo, punished by Cupid, saw his love denied by Daphne who preferred to be a tree than to be touched by Apollo, the most beautiful among the Gods. In the sculpture we can see the moment when Apollo touches Daphne and she transforms, her feet turn into roots and her hands turn into laurel wands, portrayed in this collection through long strips and more exaggerated volumes.
The story also tells that Apollo is represented with a laurel wreath as a way of staying connected to Daphne for all eternity present here in the round shapes and in the quilted embroidered laurel leaf shapes.
Sculptural shapes, very detailed pieces and metallic accessories are inspired by the moment of Daphne’s transformation, the touch and crown of Apollo giving life to this collection-“Louro
