The new Montespan Collection by Caroline Price for Vervain is imbued with history and an abundance of character, with its fabrics, wallcoverings and trimmings created around the story of her vivacious muse, Madame de Montespan, long term mistress of King Louis XIV of France and mother of seven of his children. Passion, wit — and above all — style, exude from this curated collection which explores sensuous textures and remarkably unique patterns.

Reading through Madame de Montespan’s memoirs and other historical accounts, Caroline found a compelling story which became the foundation of this collection. Proclaimed by historians to be the “true queen of France” and the epicenter of court life, Athénaïs de Montespan lived fully and had significant influence with the King. The collection captures not only her esprit, witty nature, and love of beauty, but it captures a passionate love affair. 
Caroline Price’s vision for the collection combines stories from history with inspiration from other vivacious women in her life and the beauty of the world around her.
