New England is welcoming spring with a week-long forecast of rain while cherry blossoms are just about to give our street a burst of colour and delight. Signs of new life haven’t gone unnoticed by these nature-loving sleuths who find joy in the tiniest of plants and creatures. Our daily walks have us searching city landscapes for signs of nature’s annual awakening. Refreshing our senses, we opt for beautiful flowing silhouettes from the Spanish brand, Popelin.
Shades of terracotta abound at this botanical centre from the pots lining our walkways to the twirling dresses of my garden nymphs. Popelin’s founder, Cristina Sánchez, evokes a simple elegance through her use of textile and design. From the sourcing of materials to the manufacturing process, each garment is made entirely in Spain. With every turn of the cloth, details speak for themselves. Fabrics are thoughtfully chosen and feel just as wonderful on as they appear. Drawing inspiration from the Mediterranian, Sánchez has created a collection of earthy tones that has us dreaming of ocean sunsets and sunkissed skin.
Elise and Mila continue their quest for flowering buds and noisy hatchlings while dancing away like garden fairies in hopes of showering their own little magic on all that grows.
