The first of the IVKO fall collection is here !

All garments have a story. Many stories. We chose one for each garment. Read on.

They unload you of your burdens and they open up your heart, letting you feel the wonders of the world around you. A field of flowers, a beautiful day out in the garden, a moment of taking in summer’s bounty. We brought that back to the workplace, the kitchen table and bedside.

 

I feel like a queen, she said. I feel powerful and confident as I dance to the music around me. Lets me tell you how powerful your body is. Let us make a way for reconciliation to happen with ease. Let us have the courage to radically accept who we are. Let us find the tools to feel satisfied with ourselves. I am a Queen, she said.

 

Today I am celebrating a moment with you all. My first child turned one and my husband and I have worked closely as a team to build a new house for our new family. On the table is a plate full of sliced red tomatoes from the garden with mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and olive oil. My husband is calling ! He says he has a gift for me ! A colorful and elegant gift, that I will love. I wonder what it will be ! 

 

Do you remember that time we went for a swim, on that early fall morning? The ground was really cold, yet you insisted on going barefoot. We climbed up the hill. I watched you for awhile, admiring how tall and graceful you had become. We walked together silently. We took off our clothes and jumped into the icy water. We remain courageous.

 

My daughter has cancer. We are waiting for the doctor to come back with some test results.  Here comes our friend the clown. He exchanges a knowing smile with my daughter. They start laughing. I start laughing. And then I feel a tear in the corner of my eye. I am ready.

 

Can you tell me what you are reading ? I am looking for a book to take with me on the next train ride. I’ll be visiting my brother. Do you like what I am wearing ? I feel nervous. Its my first time traveling alone.

Welcome to the Purple Valley. A gentle and generous place where the most beautiful peonies are lovingly grown. It is here that I come for rest and inspiration. Last time I was there, a new idea came to me. It was that I imagined a new way to understand the mechanism allowing the regenerative process in cells.
