"I think the New luxury is being conscious about what you are consuming."
Two jumpers, assembled to create a luxurious polo neck, hand-decorated with beaded embroidery.
"Sustainability is a great tool to achieve the design ideas we have. We are proud to have found the right blend of fashion and sustainability."
A jumpsuit inspired by workwear, with a cinched waist for a feminine silhouette, made from men’s suits, jackets and jumpers in various different fabrics.
"What other designers consider waste of the process, I regard as raw material."
A cotton overcoat was the starting point for her jacket creation, adorned with hand-stitched three-dimensional embroidery, creating an elegant cascade of fabric rosebuds.
"By Independent thinkers for Environmental Progress."

"Luxury is to own a unique handmade garment, made by an artisan who has been mastering their technique for more than 20 years."
LUNA DEL PINAL

"I would like to quote Alan Watts - You didn't come into this world. You came out of it, like a wave from the ocean. You are not a stranger here."
Various pairs of men’s cargo trousers give new life to a beige cotton kimono, characterised by voluminous pleats and a fabric waist belt.
"Fashion has the power to change lives."
A patchwork of different types of denim forms the concept behind Bethany’s hand-printed and hand-embroidered jacket, which she crafted by reassembling pieces of fabric from coats, shirts and trousers.
