I’ve sort of given it the title of ‘Ocean’ as you know from the invitation, which is this very funny little thing here, the invitation card, and of course this print which has got coral, and sea anemones, and fish.The world’s quite a difficult place at the moment. I think, with the colour I’m trying to give optimism and happiness, and then with the word ‘Ocean’. I think most of us would quite like to be by the ocean today, because it’s the time of the year where people are starting to go on holiday and enjoy being with their children and their family. I think the ocean is a place where you can observe tranquillity, peacefulness, and also it’s a place we need to protect as well.We are selling in 73 countries and lot of countries where we are selling are very humid and very hot, and I’ve been requesting lighter and lighter fabrics. So, most of them are light-weight wools, or linen, or cotton. Music of the show (only to be used in the context of the show, protected by the right to information)
