An atmosphere instilled with the warmth of love and the nostalgia of all the times we have truly connected with it's power. Take a walk through, be transported and enliven your heart in your deepest feelings. We are dedicating this to the women whose greatest qualities and positive energies we see and feel every time we look in the mirror.

Mother’s Message visually incorporates the 2 themes of motherhood and cancer, the constellation that becomes visible in the northern hemisphere in early Spring, around Mother’s Day.
