Pleasure Garden

Taking inspiration from the pleasure gardens filled with flowers of 18th century London Pleasure Garden magazine & Insta timeline engages its public with an array of attractions – ranging from the past to the present, the sedate to the salacious. The pleasure garden was always a place to escape to – a fantasy in a flower filled garden, packed with art, music, fashion, society and sex. It is this mix that gardener & art director John Tebbs transports to the printed pages of Pleasure Garden.

The floral closet of Venus

Looking for some floral dresses? The Attico spring collection makes us feel like a modern Venus. The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli depicts the goddess Venus and is an icon of the Italian Renaissance, referring to classical Greek mythology. Botticelli represents the winds as two embracing lovers intertwined together while flying and blowing, amongst blossoming roses and flowers and awakening nature. From this blow of passion, Venus, just born, is arriving at the shore. From the other side, Horae rushes with a floral cloack (allusive to nature’s grass and flower clothes) in order to cover Venus...

Lost in a daydream

Pierre Boncompain (79) is a French modern painter of vibrant figurative and still life paintings. Boncompain’s paintings are like leisurely portrayals. Pierre’s pastels (and don’t forget his ceramics!) are an elegant plethora of beautiful women in languid poses, Mediterranean tablecloths and sunkissed flowers. Like an extended summer in Paris or the Provence. Combined with the otherworldly bouquets of Meta Flora we’re lost in a floral daydream. The arrangements of self-taught floral designer Marisa Competello reflect her interest and past (fashion stylist and dancer turned arranger) in extravagant lines, unique form and shapes, challenging vivid colour palettes and captivating textures. Pierre and Marisa appear to us as a perfect symbiosis, acting together as one bold ode to the epic beauty of flowers.

The art of giving

The beautiful Bouvardia interpreted by Edith Rewa, illustrator & designer of floral headscarfs. (Or as she likes to describe her label; a collection of wearable head museums.) For The Green Gallery she illustrated the classic Bouvardia; worlds only square flower, which looks like a giftbox before they open.
