The Story

Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher of the nineteenth century and is considered to be the father of existentialism.

He realised that we could never truly express, or even precisely understand, our own suffering. He knew that others would struggle to truly understand our problems too and as a result he considered the gift of speech an ambivalent one.

In his search for answers Kierkegaard turned to nature and in the lilies and birds found two unlikely tutors. From them he learnt the therapeutic art of remaining silent.

Loudly declare your love of silence with this print of lilies and birds.

A classic fit silk shirt featuring workwear details and beautiful metal buttons.

The fabric is Shantung silk, a rare Chinese silk with a fine slub and a slight sheen. Feels somewhere between a traditional silk and a cotton to the touch, a completely unique fabric. The fabric features an irregular slub which causes some white spots during the printing process, this is intentional and part of the fabric's charm.

The print features historiated initials spelling out 'L' and 'B' for 'The Lily and the Bird', the print also features hop plants which mean 'injustice' in the language of flowers.
