Tangy

When I made this vest, I had already decided where I wanted to do the photo shoot, in a little village in Burgundy, France called Santeney. It's a place where we go whenever we have some spare time. It's a village full of 'joie de vivre'.

Santeney is filled with lots of flowers, in all the colors you can think of, and when you walk out of the village, the first thing you see are fields of grape vines.

For me, designing Santeney gave me lots of 'joie de vivre'. I hope that making it will give you the same.
