Heaven on Earth
Designer Kimberley Gordon always references nostalgia with her brand Selkie. For this collection "I wanted it to feel exuberantly fun, with friends you can imagine as your own or as your angels. I pictured a crazy shabby chic 90’s Airbnb the angels might have rented on their week off from God!
In ancient artworks angels are depicted frequently, it was very fashionable to incorporate religious stories and Greek mythology in art. I love this time period, it was very death fearing and I can relate.
Death fear has always followed me, I have quite a strong dread and anxiety. I think a lot of it comes from loving being on earth so much… I love my life and friends and feel so lucky. I do believe that I’m surrounded by angels here, that this is heaven. I don’t believe in heaven after death and I wish so much that I did. The collection is a true celebration of life, with colour and friendship and cake and swimming, all these things that make life so beautiful. I wish I could have it forever."
