The S/S 2017 collection is one that celebrates all genders and body types. Freedom of movement has always been essential to my beliefs, whether it’s about the cut, a look proposition or the choice of materials used for their flexibility, comfort and weight. It’s about the concept of clothes that breathe a pure spirit, lightness and looking forward to alternative ways of construction in synergy with the body. Take for example the consistently developed ‘Concorde’ trousers; its unique construction and shape is inspired by the legendary aircraft that gave us supersonic transport. Its name embodies harmony and union. Vital to me is that, next to shape, these signature pieces I’ve developed are created with the idea of a forward spirit, in motion, connecting us.
We can say the same for the recognizable stripe pattern that was introduced in 2012 with my debut collection. A Zebra inspired this diagonal vibrating stripe, a significant wild horse, free, a master of balance and a symbol of individualism. These are core values that are present in each signature element I develop. The stripe features in the collections, scarfs, a series of bags and our signature stationary and packaging ever since.
