DAFNE COLLECTION

Tags
Sicily, Magna Graecia, love, passion, myth and legend.

The young Apollo loved Daphne, she was the most beautiful of all the nymphs, but she didn’t love him, she loved a simple mortal, Leucippus.

When he died, Apollo chased Dafne strenuously but, to escape from this not reciprocate passion, she invoked the Goddess Mother who transformed Dafne into a laurel tree, in Greek dafni.

From that moment Apollo, god of arts, music and poetry, loved to crown himself by weaving branches of dafni in a eternal memory of what was his first great love.

As modern goddesses, Danima crowns the contemporary nymphs weaving velvets, ottomans, lurex ribbons, in a play of colors and textures, refined and precious materials that surround the head of modern women in the revisitation of a timeless Hellenic Sicilian myth.
