The future is a consequence of the past and the present.
A collection inspired by yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Giving a second chance to what it had once been loved.
As a response to the climatic/social/economic crisis, having Upcycling as a keyword.
A nostalgic and romantic memory contrasting with the uncertainty of tomorrow.
What once fell into disuse becomes the object of deconstruction, in a game between volumetries and different temporal universes.
Dedicated to the tomorrow, so the beauty, as we know it, keeps preserved.
