Behind the collection
Parigna tells the inspiration for her first collection of 100% silk scarves - 42, Nutan: "The collection represents the emotions of a 5-year-old as she plays her days away at her grandmother's house. Walking down memory lane through every room and corridor, reminiscing. The white wall was never white. The red swing always meant more. Drawing from her Nani's embroidery and put back together with Sol Lewitt's method, the prints are dipped in nostalgia and speak with unique color and texture.
