Belle Epoque VIII

Riina Õun

The Belle Epoque collection of shoes and boots is inspired of the flower embroidery and the forms of the 'beautiful era'.

Mellifluent moon on the lips of the maddened
The orchards and towns are greedy tonight
The stars appear like the image of bees
Of this luminous honey that offends the vines
For now all sweet in their fall from the sky
Each ray of moonlight’s a ray of honey
Now hid I conceive the sweetest adventure
I fear stings of fire from this Polar bee
that sets these deceptive rays in my hands
And takes its moon-honey to the rose of the winds

(Guillaume Apollinaire 'Moonlight', english translation of 'Clair de Lune', 'Alcools', 1913)
