Inspired by ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by William Shakespeare, This socks pattern ‘Rosaline’ (in English Rosalind) evokes the first love of Romeo. Rosalind rejected Romeo’s love to let the tragedy live with Juliet! I wanted to pay homage to this discret and feminine character by creating a pair of socks in colours green and pink. I imagined Rosalind walking in the garden on fresh grass and smelling pink flowers, looking at the love between her cousin and Romeo.
