city of inspiration_RIGA

The source of inspiration for the collection SOUNDS OF SILCENCE is Riga’s phenomenal Art Nouveau which, due to its unique splendour and diversity has been included in the UNESCO listing of cultural heritage sites. One of the most beautiful secrets of Riga’s Art Nouveau is the so-called National Romanticism movement wherein the best architects of the time utilized world class trends as well the Latvians symbols of power, their ethnographic heritage, in the designs of their buildings.
