“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife” could be the most famous line ever written in English Literature and it’s legacy has inspired this collection. Our prints reflect a rose-tinted frolic through the English Countryside inspired by Regency high society’s outdoor pursuits of the day, imbued with a celebration of nature in line with our renewed appreciation of the natural world. Explore the scandal and pleasure of Vauxhall Gardens, take a leisurely stroll through the Maze Gardens, maybe even admire some of the County Seats of a certain dashing eligible bachelor. Shapes are formed from our own interpretation of Gentleman’s riding coats, tea-dresses worn with Spencer Jackets for picnics at Box Hill and what we like to think of as a female dandy of the time with “superb self-confidence.”
