Vaig crear la meva col·lecció Ofelia el 2009 inspirada en el personatge d’Ofelia de Hamlet de William Shakespeare.

És l'enamorada del príncep danès Hamlet, germana de Laertes i filla del lord camarlenc Poloni, home de confiança del rei de Dinamarca.

Es considera un mite o arquetip i se la sol associar amb flors al seu voltant i als seus cabells no recollits, un vestit ric i sovint blanc, la natura, la nit o la lluna. Se la sol representar just abans de morir, amb flors al salze o cantant, o bé ja morta, però de manera que sembla adormida.

Hi ha moltes simbologies i significats de les flors, però William Shakespeare a Hamlet va utilitzar unes flors específiques per descriure les emocions i els sentiments d'Ofelia.

Utilitzava el Romaní per al record, els Pensaments pels pensaments d’amor, el Fonoll per a l’adulació, els Corniols per a la fidelitat al casament, la Ruda vera per al menyspreu i el penediment, la Rosa salvatge per la primavera, i la Violeta per la fidelitat.

El Salze plorós que s’inclina sobre Ofelia és un símbol d’amor abandonat. Les Ortigues que creixen al voltant de les branques del salze representen dolor. I les Margarides flotant prop de la mà dreta d’Ofelia representen la innocència.

I created my Ophelia collection on 2009 inspired by the character Ophelia from Hamlet by William Shakespeare. 

Ophelia is a young noblewoman of Denmark, the daughter of Polonius, sister of Laertes, and potential wife of Prince Hamlet.

She’s considered a myth or archetype and usually associated with flowers around her and her unrecovered hair, a rich and often white dress, nature, night or moon. She’s usually represented just before dying, with flowers in willow or singing, or already dead, but seeming to be asleep.

There’re lots of symbology and meanings about flowers but William Shakespeare in Hamlet used a specific flowers to describe Ophelia’s emotions and feelings.

He used Rosemary for remembrance, Pansies for thoughts of love, Fennel for flattery, Columbines for faithfulness in wedlock, Rue for disdain and repentance, the Canker Rose for spring, Violet for faithfulness. 

The weeping willow tree leaning over Ophelia is a symbol of forsaken love. The nettles that are growing around the willow's branches represent pain. The daisies floating near Ophelia's right hand represent innocence.


" There is a willow grows aslant a brook, That shows his hoar leaves in the glassy stream; There with fantastic garlands did she come, Of crow-flowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples, That liberal shepherds give a grosser name, But our cold maids do dead men’s fingers call them: There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds, Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke; When down her weedy trophies and herself, Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide; And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up: Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes; As one incapable of her own distress, Or like a creature native and indued, Unto that element: but long it could not be, Till that her garments, heavy with their drink, Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay, To muddy death."

Hamlet, Act 1V, Scene V11 . William Shakespeare
