FALL WINTER 2021/22 COLLECTION
Social isolation gave rise to an enormous need to feel the touch and the proximity between the bodies in a way never felt before. The Fall Winter 2021/22 Collection opens the door to the disco and transports us to some of the most nostalgic feelings of those times. The desire for touch and freedom is wrapped in a vibrant and fun palette of colours, and makes us dance and sing our favourite songs. We are driven in a longing to go out and relive some of the best moments and stories that have always remained in our memories.
