What is the best part of Island life?
Doing absolutely nothing and having nowhere else to go.
Why the Maldives?
It was our first holiday post covid, we wanted to be somewhere tropical where we were secluded and had time to relax and work (Evangeline and Sami live in different countries). Our usual working holiday is on the go and this just felt like the right place to be at the right time.
What was the story behind finding the inspiration for these new prints?
Funny story. It took us a minute to dive in as the Maldives water is filled with sharks, however, we got there eventually. We were amazed by the fish, so much so we had to come up to just tell eachother every few minutes "did you see that one with the crazy blue stripes", "omg that one looks like it's a Jean Paul Gaultier fish", "That's the coolest fish I've ever seen in my life"... the list goes on. We headed in and looked at each other and said "We should be inspired by this and make some new prints from them". We ran to the only shop on the island where they sold underwater housings for your phone and went back out to snap them all up.
Did you expect to find inspiration here?
You can find inspiration everywhere, it is crazy how much has inspired us on our travels.
