BEHIND THE BRAND

During her time in Belgium, Adeline became inspired by Marie-Antoinette and 18th century decor. The decorative nature of the paintings and clothing from that era sparked an interest in the depth of patterns, as well as the harmony of softness and color. She incorporates her love of nature and symbolism into her work. She could always be found with a sketchbook full of wildflowers and leaves exploring her passion for nature's patterns, shapes, colors and textures which ultimately inspired her to create her own. Through her admiration for high rendering details of life, Adeline decided to expand into the digital world of art as well. Her mixed heritage and racial identity is expressed - in part, through the traditional garments and adornments worn in her portraits. Her love for creating the outfits in her art pieces led to her interest in creating actual outfits with her art on them. 

The imagery comes from motifs found in nature, highlighting the intricacies and details of florals, herbs, blossoms and animals. Adeline decided that she wanted to create a sophisticated garment for all occasions; boardroom to Saturday morning market, desk to drinks. It was important to her to fabricate a garment that is freeing, feels nice on the skin and flatters regardless of age, size or skin tone. Her affinity for adornments inspired the decision to create an accessory to wear with any type of look. One could dress it down with streetwear and loungewear or dress it up with heels and some jewelry. Each piece mixes patterns and colors that match.
