Erec and Enide

The Color: A rich evergreen combines with a deep crimson-pink to make this colorway, which is reminiscent of a vintage Christmas and inspired by the contrast between love and duty.

The Name: Erec and Enide are characters in Chretien de Troyes' story, in which they are married. Erec is devoted to his wife and thus stops going out on knightly adventures. Enide is upset by this and Erec catches her crying about it. Upset, he takes her on a journey in which he seeks adventures but orders her not to speak no matter what happens on their travels. She breaks her promise multiple times to warn Erec of danger. They do eventually reconcile and the story is an interesting look at how knightly adventures and marriage work (or don't work) together.
