Where is Home?
Home, perhaps, is not one place or country. Perhaps we find a feeling of home through the rituals we create for ourselves; a sentiment of being rooted or grounded. Alighieri’s SS20 collection highlights the way in which we build homes, relationships and family trees through jewellery, passing them to the people we love, carrying them daily as reminders of our past experiences and promises for future adventures.
“To posit the question, Where is home?, I travelled back to Zambia, the vivid backdrop of my childhood, to shoot the new collection. I wanted to place these images alongside portraits of my 62 year old mother, as a celebration of her roots, and to underline the beautiful way in which the Alighieri community is an anthology of human beings, of many ages and places. We are all collecting fragments from the places we’ve been, and trying to piece them together to create a sense of identity.” - Rosh Mahtani.
Questi parea che contra me venesse
con la test'alta e con rabbiosa fame,
si che parea che l'aere ne temesse
Inferno, canto i, lines 46-49
In the selva oscura - dark wood- Dante is confronted by a terrifying lion. His head held high, with a furious hunger, it seems as though the very air is trembling in fear of the wild beast. This encounter comes close to forcing Dante to turn away from the perilous journey. It is at this point that Virgil, his guide, appears to offer him counsel and companionship.
