The FW17 collection places an emphasis on highlighting the female figure and in revisiting classic cuts which play with basics in both underwear and outerwear. Updated fabrics and patterns with fine detailing create exclusive and sophisticated pieces for both day and night pieces. Classic black is the leitmotif of this collection, yet it also features new colours such as brick red, olive green, mink brown and electric blue which contrast with up-to-the-minute floral patterns, representing a new direction which draws inspiration from the 1970’s. The final result is a functional yet feminine collection which pays special attention to the finer details, lending a truly unique touch to each individual item.
