The text ‘He who is able to enjoy his memories lives twice’ in Latin and in Dutch. It originates with the Roman writer Martialis (40-130 A.D.). The lace patterns are from an inventory in the possession of the designer’s mother. Household utensils, smells in general, etc. recall very strong memories. Pearls symbolise patience, purity, love, fertility and peace.
