The inspiration behind Collection 195 is the story told through this painting. In ancient Rome a law called Lex Oppia was set in 215 BC, which imposed a tax to female assets. It limited women from owning gold, down to the colour of garment they could wear. The women spoke up collectively and demonstrated against this law. With just their voices they managed to revoke the law in 195 BC. Our collection highlights and celebrates their story. This act showcases the impact of empowered women.
