Garden People SS15

This season, we’re inspired by Valerie Finnis’ photographs of eccentric gardeners. Photographer Valerie Finnis, along with her trusty Rolleiflex camera, captured Britain's gardening culture from post-WW2 through the 70s. Her subjects were society gardeners who combined formality and function effortlessly and unapologetically. Although these women often dressed to be alone amongst nature, their wardrobes reflected a personal celebration of the colors, textures and unique character of the English country garden.
