Lotus was inspired by the trade routes of old ~ centuries ago merchants who traveled across the lands brought spices and luxurious fabrics from the East… and we were intrigued by the eclectic and worldly style that must have been sparked by these treasures…

So of course we journeyed to an ancient mansion outside of Paris, the family tree of the mansion’s owners dating back to the year 900. Lindsey Wixson stepped into character, embodying an almost other worldly presence, trapped between centuries of beauty and history… She skips and twirls playfully through the ancient rooms, telling us a story of a woman still lively with the spirit of her girlhood, lonely, wondering and mysterious.

Through the images and campaign film (below), we saw our designs brought to life – the white embroidery anglaise Damsel pieces are young and playful, the classic and sophisticated Etienne representing her journey into independence, the Anastasia Brocade, richly decorative and finally, whispers of opulence with the LOTUS story.
