Our first collection, of course, pays homage to France's former queen of opulence and scandal...Marie Antoinette.
In 1770 she married Louis XVI at the hesitation of the French people. Their reign caused a lot of controversy due to her Austrian heritage, their lavish spending, and disconnection from their people. This led to the fall of the monarchy and the French revolution.
One of her infamous stories involves Count Axel Von Fersen, with whom she maintained a "special relationship" until her death. His response when she met her fate at the guillotine: “I have lost everything I had in this world...the one I loved so much, for whom I would have given my life a thousand times over, is no more.”
Sounds like a love triangle to us.
