Door Obsession Collection: European
Over the years, and completely by chance, I’ve photographed & collected a few doors. These are from a special collection from Europe. They have informed my design aesthetic tremendously i.e. I tend to like & design very structural clothing which have an upright quality irrespective of whether they are being worn or displayed on a rack. And voila, here is one of the inspirations.
Ornate entry door to Winchester Cathedral in Winchester, England. The style is Gothic/English and is the largest cathedral in England. Noted residents include some Kings, Queens and Jane Austen.
Some ornate door in Venice….I think it was an entrance to a Vault/Museum.
The kind of architecture you see in the eternal City Rome is breathtaking. Here’s another random door.
Here’s another random door, this one from the Montmarte area of Paris, France. The facade has such detailed carvings.
It has to be quite something else to be educated in England, let alone Oxford. This is the entry door to the Bodleian Library at Oxford.
Entrance to the Bath Abbey in Bath, near the Roman Baths in England.
Some door in Paris, France. Two for the price of one.
That’s me in front of Highclere Castle a.k.a. Downton Abbey – another ornate albeit smaller door!
