Happy Sunday, it’s Labour Day but I want to welcome May with a postcard from Parnassus…
All the forms live through Space and Time: they flow along centuries and arts; they dwell in ideas and flourish in details.
HAPPY MAY DAY! | BUON PRIMO MAGGIO!
We would like to welcome May with an ideal escapade at Granville, chez Monsieur Dior and his fabulous scented garden , full of roses, forget-me-not and, of course, lilies-of-valley…
Enjoy this métissage dedicated to a legendary coutourier: an artist IS always his/her oeuvre.
