Inspired by the natural phenomenon "Mist", this collection depicts the common atmosphere in the big cities. The greyish appearance of the air, formed due to temperature change, caused by condensation of water vapor, served as the starting point for selecting the color palette.
This is a collection with a wide range of textile choice, where the Wool and Cotton fabrics come to life in classic and sober pieces combined with streetwear details of jersey, polyester and other fibers for both man and woman.
Therefore, Mist is the inspiration for this new collection wishing to convey a trendy, mature look, with a careful design that stands out for its innovative details.
