The ‘Geraldine’ coat – inspired by my friend of that name – fits UK 8/10and USA 6/8 .Painted in vibrant colours onto silk doupion. It has no buttons , tab pockets in the fronts and a two part bracelet length sleeve with no shoulder seam, so it sits beautifully on the body. The ‘Santa Maria’ group of scarves and clothes were a direct attempt to paint the colours and effects of sunlight pouring through stained glass windows on the the walls, columns and floor of the church. Part of a collection inspired by paintings in the Uffizi Gallery, Florentine streets, doorways, churches and colours, corrugated metal gates and sparkling sunshine. ‘ The woman who knew too much’ is to be found, staring out of the painting straight into the eyes of the onlooker – in Masaccio’s ‘ Holy Trinity painting in Santa Maria Novella.Worn shoes from ChaniiB in Bath and a wonderful one of a kind printed aluminium neck piece by Annie Beardsley.
