Collection lines

The collection, inspired on how a queer palace would be, tries to represent all the characters that would live in a historical palace from a queer lent. Growing up listening to heteronormative palace stories, the designer aims to imagine how a queer reality would exist in it and how his catalan culture would be represented. As a consequence, the collection is inspired by silhouettes and details from historical garments that are juxtaposed to garments inspired by the actual night queer scene.

The collection continues to explore one of the core topics of the brand: the mix of technologies and craftmanship. For this, we can find the usage of 3D printing, creative pattern cutting and different crafts.
