Fall · Winter collections
Carefully handcrafted pieces
There is a definite return to elegance as environmentally and socially conscious dressing comes to the fore. In a bid to make clothes last longer and be more re-wearable.
An entire collection developed in high-quality materials such as leather, shearling, and silk. Inspired on relaxed tailored shapes — all of which pointed towards a trend of effortless yet sophisticated dressing for the modern cosmopolitan woman.
"The oval shape is present in many of our designs; it represents our own Ying and Yang.
The petal extracted from the Flower of Life represents the conjunction between the roundness of its body and the angles and peaks of both its ends. Just as our own creations, it represents the necessary balance between charm and confidence, between our comfort zone and our need to address new dimensions."

"Focused on Mother Earth, with colors and shapes that can be found in nature such as terracotta and mustard from the autumn fall, dark green from the pines of high mountains, or light grey as the main fashion cities around the world."
"Inspired by the idea of combining the best
traditional arts and crafts available in Spain,

Proficient in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator to create digital pattern making, flat drawings, spec packs and fabrics' prints.
"The silk, with its own prints developed by artists exclusively for the brand, are conceived in skirts, blouses, and dresses with handmade applications, such as handmade embroidery crochets."
"Waves, flames, waterfalls in degraded prints coexist with plains prints in perfect natural harmony with handmade embroidery in silks and cotton. Freedom feeling. Serenely sophisticated."
