"Arcadia", an electrifying patchwork pattern from our 1943 'Trend of the Times' collection, was a study in maximalism in its original iteration.
We took a small section of Arcadia's happy geometric cacophony and blew it up to give it an identity of its own. The birth of A Midiin three different scales meant that we could finally herald the soft, hand-drawn doodles properly.
A midi - 'noon' in French - is when the reflection of the sunlight in the water hits just right, and the ocean's surface appears to dance as the waves ebb and flow. Yeah...it's a mood.
