The Neptunian Collection explores the natural patterns on adorning deep-sea creatures featuring four designs inspired by the sea. Secret Language, Sea Ray and Raja are inspired by the diverse markings on the Spotted Eagle Ray and Anemone is an elegant, undulating pattern based on the markings of the Spotted-White Rose Anemone. The collection highlights are the 51 symbols found in Secret Language, each given its own meaning—drawn from Tarot, Astrology and traditional symbolism. Neptunian’s aquatic theme is visible through the watercolor textures within the patterns conveying the movement and reflections of the ocean and its creatures. Neptunian’s watery feeling is reminiscent of Aimée’s Scuba diving and snorkeling experiences in Indonesia, Mexico and the Virgin Islands.
The symbols in Secret Language encapsulate the mysteries of the deep and tell the story of an ancient connection between the heavens and earth, covering the hand-painted watercolor background. Symbols such as The Lovers, The Vision and The Kingdom are examples of how the bold patterning of the Spotted Eagle Ray depicts a covert language.
Anemone has an understated sophistication, replicating the intriguing striped pattern of the Spotted-White Rose Anemone with a rich complimentary watercolor wash.
