The special bond between siblings, a celebration of brotherhood and sisterhood, and Japanese textiles. This is a spirit of the collection, which originated in historic images of twins.
The starting point of the collection was historic images of sisters and brothers. The combination of masculine fabrics like corduroy with feminine lame woven jacquard and substantial handwoven tapestry translates into connection between durability and blessing of sibling love. This inspired the use of mainly sustainable fabrics, such as linen and recycled viscose, to communicate long-lasting attachment.
The collection presents an idea of a twin look, with double-sided fabrics: indigo tweed, lilac woollen cotton blends houndstooth pattern, cotton blend and ivory linen jacquard. All the beading and trimmings are created with natural materials and processes, mainly jade and shell, cord used as straps and fastenings.
With each element, from floral tapestry and patchwork to traditional weaving used in top stitching, the designer cherishes tenacious relationship between siblings.
