A mixture of sober fabrics and acid colours, drawing contrasts and looking for the weave that stages the leitmotiv of the collection. Plastic resources will dominate our nature because, if we abandon them in seas, rivers and oceans they will last centuries, if we take care of them... they will be eternal. As a central core, we get rid of materials to focus on the pure, on the scarce, on the aspirational...
