Cassandra Connolly For Lewis & Irene - Sound Of The Sea
'Ever since I was a little girl I loved to read about myths and legends, particularly British ones. Until my teens I had a fascination with fairies and would spend hours pouring over illustrated books such as ‘Lady Cottington’s Pressed Fairy Book’ by Brian Froud and ‘A Flower Fairies Treasury’ by Cicely Mary Barker. There was something so magical that captured my imagination. Fast forward 20 years and I get to revisit it all again with my 6 year old daughter, and it’s AMAZING. Whether walking through our local woodland looking for fairy doors in the trees of visiting the seaside and watching for mermaids tails hidden in the waves, I get to see it all through the eyes of another person and it is so inspirational. My daughter loves fairies, unicorns and mermaids just as much as I ever did, so designing this collection felt effortless. We got to read lots of children’s books together and on a recent holiday spent hours at the beach looking for shells as inspiration to draw from.' - Cassandra Connolly.
