Collection – memento mori, memento mortis

The collection takes inspiration from the mourning costume of the victorian England, with a focus on the post mortem photography.
The bodies of the dead used to be shooted standing with the help of a metal support. I recreated a sort of metal support that makes the models looking hanging.
All the jackets can be worn in both ways: normally or hanging.
The materials are a combination of contemporary fabrics and victorian embroidery.
Mountains born, raised with the love for literature, fashion and costume design. The label combines these loves creating a dreamlike, visionary, rebel and romantic fashion view; standing outside the main concepts, always been timeless and original. Looking at the history of costume to build a strong and powerfull consciousness of the future.
