Design developments include flame-inspired elements and shapes: fringe, ruffles, pleats. We see rich layers of textured surfaces of different density and knits in fiery colors. Ash and molten surfaces are translated into sets, wavy shapes and volumes. Scorched edges inspire the treatment of fabrics.
The outerwear has clean layers, prints with a three-dimensional effect, quilted volumes, oversized functional elements, sculptural sleeves.
