THE DESIGN & COLOUR STORY
The moon has long had an aura of mystery and magic about it. It is tied to the ebbs and flows of the tide, as well as the ever-changing cycle of women’s bodies. The moon has great influence on the sea, so it is no surprise that the mermaid embodies qualities often associated with the moon and the tides.
In the colour story of this pair we wanted to bring emphasis to the dichotomy of dark and light. The moon goes through its cycles of shining bright in our sky, and times when it is a faint shadow. The mermaid embodies this concept in a more intricate way. Mermaids mirror the complexity of women's emotions, ranging from playful to stormy, a parallel to the ebbs and flows that happen through a woman's moon cycle. Each moment of this cycle, within the moon and within the woman, is sacred and powerful.
