The idea of the navy is an adventure. Exploration and design ideas from the east and the west as if they were a mood board of travel notes. The garments are a mix of utility navy features directly taken from traveller wardrobe (eg utility pockets, eyelets, technical fabrics etc) and inspirational collections from around the world.
Volumes and shapes are inspired by the Orient: harem pants, wrapped skirt, comfortable, loose fit pants and maxi dresses.
References to the Far East with the use of bright silk or iridescent embroideries with precious elements like stones and sequins.
Knitwear embodies an adventurous spirit with a focus on the shoulders as well as open-works network effect.
Micro-patterns are inspired by the Moroccan ceramics or Moorish windows. Stripes, a key feature of the navy style, reinterpreted, irregular, oblique, colorful and embellished with mesh inserts, tulle, broderie anglaise. The blue tones are interspersed with a range that goes from sand and ecru accented by red and yellow.
