Delfina Carmona’s shadow play and penchant for primary colours in her work made her a natural partner for MILOU MILOU. Delfi shot our linen at home in Buenos Aires apartment in August, 2020. We built Delfi's set using KAAN, JIM and a crisp white flat sheet to offset the opposing block shades. The duvet is a single tone orange, and pillowcases in full JIM and KAAN, as well as one set in two tone KAAN and JIM to maximise texture.       Images by Delfina Carmona and MILOU MILOU.
