The theme picks up influences from the world of youth. We have the “college” look. Colorful aspects, shiny, metallic, with motifs and funny messages. Irony mixed with dark and gritty aspects, such as the skin or masculine tailored fabrics.
Freedom and fun are seen through the use of over volumes and a mix of patterns and asymmetries.
On one hand, there is a romantic touch, given by devore velvet and floral motifs. Here, the volumes are relaxed and influenced by sports, seem through elastics, drawstring waists and sporty materials.
Knitwear takes on a grunge style, with melange yarn and a mix of pattern and destroyed effects.
Fantasies echo the playful, fun, animal print, college graphics and random, painting effects.
The colors range from black to army shades, right up to candy colors. Texture wise, metallic are fundamental.
