Inside Güell Lamadrid’s collection we find Gabriela, the classic English floral print with smooth backgrounds that is renewed with fresh and natural colors 100% linen. It is represented in two different but equally romantic prints: Alegra, with tulips and roses, and Gabriela, the most indiano.
As this is all about nature and classic, we want to speak about Gabriela as if it was a beautiful flower.
Gabriela as a movie
“Loreak (2014)“. Loreak -flowers in Basque- is the mixture of film and passion for flowers. This Basque film tries to express the power of flowers and the emotions that lie behind them. In this lovely story, the plot revolves around a woman who receives a bouquet of flowers every day at the same time. The mystery is assured. Directors, José María Goenaga and Jon Garaño, want to teach us how flowers in the film convey those feelings that the characters are not able to express.
Gabriela as a musical work
“Waltz of the Flowers”, by Tchaikovsky. Tchaikovsky was a Russian composer of Romanticism and he’s one of the most recognized classical musicians in history. This composition is part of the famous ballet The Nutcracker. It takes us to the universe of flowers, Tchaikovsky wants you imagine yourself as a flower and, throughout the song, you’re a plant which lives different things: sun rises, it starts to rain, we dance…
Gabriela as a character
William Shakespeare. We all know about this playwright, but not everyone knows his relation with flowers. There are many studies devoted to botanical references of his works, which uses flowers and other plants for symbolic purposes. In some as important as Hamlet or Romeo & Juliet.
— “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” (Romeo & Juliet)
Gabriela as a book
“The Little Prince“. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry published in 1943 one of the most important children’s literary works of our century and one of the bestselling of all time: The Little Prince. Inside this story we meet a flower, The Rose, with which creates a friendship and which shows us the love of the little prince. The metaphor of the woman he loves.
— “If someone loves a flower from which there is only one copy in millions and millions of stars, just need one look to be happy. You can say satisfied: “My flower is there, somewhere…” But if the sheep eats the rose, for the prince is as if suddenly all the stars went out! And this is not important!
Is it not important the war of the Lambs and flowers?”
