There are times in life when, for whatever reasons, we are taken from one place to another. In this process, we create a break from all that is familiar, whether home, comfort, family or friends. It can create the feeling of Saudade - a beautiful distinctly Portuguese concept; the idea of melancholy, nostalgia, a deep longing rooted in separation in time or space. It speaks simultaneously to presence and absence, “the love that remains” - it is at once recollection and emptiness.
This was the inspiration for the Reunion Collection.
A collection created by a junction of geometric elements that symbolize reunions.
Where there were empty spaces, they have in places been filled by filigree, which speak to the force of our memories and stories, and how they nourish our human connections.
