A LOVE LETTER TO THE DAHLIA
Was there ever a prettier flower than the dahlia? We think not.
We are perpetual lovers of flowers at Eponine, we can’t get enough of them. We love them in all shapes and sizes, we love them in all colours and we love them in (almost) all varieties.
We love flowers, but dahlias undoubtedly take the proverbial biscuit. We absolutely bloomin’ adore dahlias (pun intended).
So, how better to write our love letter, than to match some of our favourite Eponine Spring and Summer designs - old and new - with some of our favourite dahlias? (We’ve also sprinkled in a handful of our favourite flower-related quotes for good measure). So here we go. Our love letter to the dahlia.
WHEN STEFANO GABBANA WROTE
“To me, flowers are happiness”
HE WAS SURELY TALKING ABOUT DAHLIAS
RALPH WALDO EMERSON WROTE
“THE EARTH LAUGHS IN FLOWERS”
AND HE WAS LIKELY LOOKING AT DAHLIAS AS HE WROTE IT
CLAUDE MONET SAID
"I must have flowers, always, and always"
Stephan Skeem SAID
“Flowers don’t tell, they show”
(VERY POSSIBLY SAID WHILST WALKING IN A FIELD OF DAHLIAS)
THREE CHEERS TO YOU, DAHLIA
