About the collection
Using Botticelli's Primavera painting as the initial inspiration Eternal Springtime is the inspiration for this collection. Botanical prints from the V&A archive and the library at Kew Gardens are important sources for ideas as are the beautiful parks and garden squares in London itself.
Fashion Designer Rachel Chiu. Before returning to London, Olivia joined forces with her friend and fellow Parsons graduate Rachel Chiu - a talented designer with extensive experience in activewear. Rachel is also a keen tennis player and so it was natural that their first collaboration should have tennis at its core. Her technical skills and clever designs are the essential components of this high performance collection.
