ABOUT THE LABEL:
The line attracts with its extremes: oldschool meets science fiction, straight lines give way to luxurious intricate detailing and surprises. The style perfectly suits people who enjoy their identity. It is a fusion of old and new, evoking a mixture of an aviator feel with a slightly futuristic edge - clean and strong silhouettes that secretly exude sex appeal.Highest quality materials are used for the garments, sometimes own motifs are printed on fabric. Quality is of utmost importance, working among other things with handcrafted accessoires made of pure silver such as the bracelets and pins with insects. The collections are often inspired by past decades, but sometimes also by elements of the fetish scene.
Fashion is a means of communication. It gives us the possibility to express ourselves as individuals, to distinguish ourselves. Every morning, we decide how we want to be seen by others and dress ourselves accordingly. Fashion reflects our attitude, our interests, our personality and the time. It expresses desire and is a testimonial to the gift of human beings to reinvent themselves over and over again.
These pieces should give you the possibility to express yourself as an individual, to give a nonverbal statement.
