Gigi and Rachel’s Inspiration: Art Noveau

This spring season, our designers were influenced by the universal beauty of the French gardens and the dynamic Art Nouveau movement, which bridged a period of transition from romance into modernism at the end of the 19th century.  This new style of art was embraced across Europe and America, influencing many aspects of culture.
