Fascination for the cold, wide open spaces where the cold winds of the north calls for a time long gone. Of this archaic world a new composite style is born. Confronting a rather raw spirit viewed from the outside, with a refined cloth style worn underneath.
MEN & WOMEN Fabrics for protection, carded wools, flannels, fabrics in relief, brushed winter cottons, quilted or coated fabrics, imitation leathers and shearling aspects.Knits with irregular, slub yarn and relief aspects. In an ornamental, feminine spirit, light, fluid fabrics like chiffon, lace, tulle and crepe in solids, prints or ornamented. More basic winter cottons such as marled and occasionally coated twills, canvas and drills. A winter folkloric spirit with colourful jacquard wools inspired by Mongolia, Siberia.
