Taurus – Art for the sign of the bull.

April 20th – May 20th.

Taurus is first among the three Earth Signs, and surprisingly is ruled by the feminine Venus, meaning that the colours most strongly associated with the sign of the bull, are in fact pastel tones, pinks and peaches as well as green, which connects them to nature and the earth. Taurus are not fond of change. Preferring safety and security, they like the familiar and routine comfort of life, so are not ones to frequently change and update their wardrobe or interior décor. They are attracted to possessions and are responsive to their surroundings, so once they have found the perfect piece they like to proudly display it. As a sign, Taurus are generally down to earth, are not attracted to gaudy, flashy or over the top things, they are often the last to adopt to the latest trends, opting instead for tried and tested colour mixes, and they insist on high quality pieces that will stand the test of time. They have a deep seated connection with the past and often are attracted to a vintage/retro design style.We have pulled together a few of our favourite pieces which are certain to appeal to those born under the sign of the bull, and would make for perfect gifts for friends and family.

With evolution comes a continuous new understanding of what love means, and love itself can be seen as a continuation of evolution. Available in both Men’s and Women’s fitted fashion items, this is the perfect way to show the Taurean in your life how much you care.

city-rootsArtist Anna Slavkova describes herself as having been diagnosed with an incurable sense of humour and laughs all the time – saying that this is how she attracts the loved ones and not-so-loved ones around her….She loves coffee… Irish coffee to be precise, and she hates umbrellas because they obstruct the view (of her)!… She paints… while working… in order to find an excuse not to work! In this image the  buildings and roads are depicted as lines with green balls at the end of each road. The simple message that is shared by the artist is that the people living in these homes all have a path to travel on in order to reach their desired destination. City Roots is available across the fashion range for both men and women.
