The moodboard draws inspiration from the Cretan women and the frescoes of Minos palace. The Minoan civilization was a Bronze Age civilization that arose on the island of Crete and flourished from about the 27th–15th century BC.
In Ladies in Blue, fresco of Minoan women, aged 1600 BC, it is very evident that women’s dress played a great part in Minoan civilization. The upper part of the women is clothed in a sleeved jacket sewn at the shoulder, but the breast is bare. The headdress of these splendidly attired women is a turban-like roll of patterned material or a tall cap. Jewellery was just as highly developed, giving us a hint of the luxury that prevailed in Minoan era.
Knossos Frescoes, which is the application of paint, in particular for details, onto a dry plaster throughout the palaces of Knossos, was the use of low relief in the plaster to give a shallow three dimensional effect. Colours employed were black (carbonaceous shale), red (haematite), white (hydrate of lime), yellow (ochre), blue (silicate of copper), and green (blue and yellow mixed).
