Wishing to encourage reading among children and to share our own love of books, we collaborated with the Italian artist Gaia Stella.
Award-winning illustrator and author, she has worked for many Italian and international publishers such as Hélium, La Joie de Lire, De La Martinière Jeunesse, Mondadori, Einaudi. She has also created illustrations for The New York Times, Vogue Bambini and The Boston Globe.
The playful, colorful and geometric illustrations of her children's book 
“Mes Endroits à moi” instantly caught our eye. Following little Alice on her exploration through her favorite spots, Gaia makes us discover the greenhouse, the library and many other well known places of our daily lives through the curious and amazed eyes of a child.

In honor of the presentation of her book in France, we designed a very capsule collection of three dresses. Inspired by the illustrations of Gaia Stella's book, these precious gowns are hand embroidered with themes from the book : the greenhouse, the jungle and home.

Each dress is a real masterpiece demanding more than a week of work for one skilled embroiderer. Fully handmade with embroidery hoops, these dresses are highly sophisticated.
