When I think of an “Enchanted Picnic’ I think of my time in Paris, I also think of Folies in Versailles, rave party in Schönbrunn, Murder in an English garden,Jacques Tati on vacation in a golden carriage,Pretty DIY by Lewis Carroll, Fragonard gate-crashes the camp site, Hansel and Gretel sample molecular cuisine. Technical research and reasoned ecology show their impertinent sides, A festival of glamorous and fun materials. The dawn of artificial preciousness. Really anything that can be classified as an enchanted picnic, anything that can bring back memories and make you feel enchanting.
The range sets your teeth on edge. The neon colors are whitened. Jelly pink is transparent, the pastels are over-bright. The brights are on fire, tempered by a reasonable grey and a measured beige.
