Melting Ice collection is housed in a cold and icy environment, on a proposal which refers to the Arctic landscape and its physical and natural elements. Inspired on the ice and on its transformation processes, Melting Ice breathes a cold air, a polar and Nordic atmosphere, simultaneously still and dynamic. This collection is intended for a very feminine, delicate and fragile woman, but at the same time with an untouchable presence. The woman is no longer just a woman, but a being, a crystal entity. The outfits born from a dialogue between sticky and fluid, where the veils seek to translate the cold and Nordic winds.

I observe and learn a lot from characters personalities in cinema and music videos. This is probably the thing that makes me get more thoughts and ideas, helping me to create. I get truly inspired by powerful and beautiful women’s of the 90s, I guess some examples would be: Esther Canãdas in the 90s catwalks, Chloe Sevigny in “Boys Don't Cry”, Sissy Spacek on “Badlands”, Sharon Stone in “Basic Instinct”, Emmanuelle Seigner in “Nine Gate”, Nina Persson on “Lovefool”, Patricia Arquette in “Lost Away” or Dominique Swain in “Lolita”..
