Embroidery: 60% Viscose, 40% Acrylic
The TIARÉ is Tahiti’s national flower, traditionally offered in garlands to welcome visitors. Interpreted in embroidery on a cotton satin, the look is modern and is intended to be a world away from traditional, rigorously floral clichés. The simple, tender shapes recall the stained-glass art of Henri Matisse. The petals of the flowers are embroidered in chain stitch with a matt wool thread and skilfully linked to the leaves, embroidered in bright satin stitch. The direction of the stitching delicately follows the forms of the design. The bulging of the petals makes the TIARE design a generous bouquet. The ten thread colours, fastidiously selected during the dyeing process, are inspired by the life-affirming harmony of the flowers of Tahiti.
