The “Victorian Rose” Collection was designed for Silkadore – a Polish brand that creates hand-painted silk scarves in Poland. The client requested a design inspired by the victorian period but at the same time universal and related to contemporary trends.
“The Collection is for women who appreciate the classics and the craftsmanship of a hand-painted silk scarf as a jewelry piece.”
The rose became the central motif of the collection as the queen of flowers; it symbolizes love, femininity, dignity, and beauty at the same time. It also embodies sensuality and mysticism; it is delicate, feminine, and sensual but also strong, able to defend itself, and independent as today’s women.
The collection includes three color versions: malachite green, ruby red, and sapphire garnet.
The inspiration for the collection was the victorian era painting “The Soul of The Rose” from 1908. The painter William Waterhouse depicted a woman subtly and sensually delighted with the scent of roses. More info in the blog post
“Looking at the painting, we also see the strength and restraint of the lady depicted. The artist visually translated the motif of feeling beautiful and amazed by the world into the design of an original silk scarf in the collection.” from Silkadore.
