as you really are
Moving forward in time is a game with an uncertain conclusion. Perhaps you’re tempted to imagine how those around you will look, or how your life will change as you make each single conscious or unconscious decision.
We don’t see things as they really are. Neither do we remember our story as it really happened, but rather in the way that is most becoming to our mind. We see life as we ourselves are. Our own future therefore, will necessarily have much to do with the way in which we feel here,
now, in this moment; everything that touches us, everything that transforms us into richer, more complex individuals. From observing what makes us up and what surrounds us comes our
very essence. What excites and worries us. What provokes nostalgia for who we were and what we have lost, or the curiosity of what we still dream about knowing.
The delicate architecture
of the animal world
Deconstructed, or unfinished… an entirely manual fabrication marks the difference between a conventional garment and one full of sense and feeling. Our colours are crepuscular, warm, sober and natural: black, navy blue and deep crimson.
We are passionate about detail and contrasts full of personality, combining pure, simple lines with more complex, organic details, allowing seams to coexist with quilted geometric forms that adapt themselves to each garment.
We confer special importance upon printing, which we elaborate via serigraphy, digital printing, cottons, gauzes and elasticised meshes.
