An inspired illustrator

Cradled by the sun of south-eastern France, this young illustrator quickly learned to play with light and shadow. Today, she lives in Paris where the summer waves of her childhood constantly influence her work and her good mood. After proving herself for other major brands, she welcomed a collaboration with Monoïkos 1297 with enthusiasm.

A NOTE OF HISTORY

This collection is inspired by the Monegasque coat of arms. The diamonds represent the shield of the coat of arms of Monaco, tapered silver and gules. The shield, or blazon, is adorned with white diamonds, the silver, and red diamonds, the gules.

Other components of the Principality's history are present:

The two monks, each carrying a sword, illustrate the founding episode of the Grimaldi dynasty. Indeed, it was in 1297 that François Grimaldi, known as la Malizia, (the cunning one in Italian) and his companions, assaulted the fortress of Monaco, disguised as Franciscan friars with swords hidden under their soutanes.

The collar around the shield represents the Order of St. Charles, the highest national honor. It was instituted in 1858 by Prince Charles III as an affirmation of the country's sovereignty and is awarded by the Sovereign Prince of Monaco for merit and services rendered to the state or to his person.

The closed princely crown represents sovereignty.

And finally, the motto "Deo Juvante", written on the banner and translated as "with the help of God".
This maxim was that of Lambert Grimaldi and became in 1477 the motto of the Grimaldi dynasty. Lambert Grimaldi succeeded in freeing himself from the influence of the Genoese through a game of alliances and "with the help of God".

Cotton

The cotton in this garment has been carefully chosen.

Cotton is a natural, vegetable fiber and one of the oldest and most widely used fibers in the world.

Like most natural fibers, cotton is a breathing material. It has the particularity of not being too hot in summer and of being very pleasant in winter. A stole made of cotton will not soak up your sweat and will always remain very comfortable to wear.

In order to preserve its quality, we recommend you to wash this stole with a soft detergent at 30°C or even better to wash it by hand with a teaspoon of white spirit vinegar and let it dry flat or to entrust its care to a specialist.
