‘Temple of Flora’: inspirational work of art, history and luxury in pure silk from the exquisite Rory Hutton Collection
An ode to Flora, Roman goddess of flowering plants, this Rory Hutton design, Temple of Flora, was almost two years in the making.
In this vibrant red and pink scarf the colour of roses, Flora takes centre stage, standing in a classical temple holding a garland of flowers. Her temple is surrounded by formal parterre and knot gardens with ornately scrolling ironwork marking the perimeter. The outer borders are filled with a joyful abundance of flowering specimens.
Other features within the garden include a dovecote, birdbath, potted orange tree, a sundial and elegant tulipieres. In front of the temple is the gardener’s dog, together with her abandoned sun hat and watering can.
