LOS MANOLOS & LAS MANUELAS
Textile as the expression of what is human, the plumage as a longing for the divine.
This series of knit pieces seeks to render homage to pre-columbian fabrics, which at the height of a desire for the sublimation of a mortal need to create an aura of grandeur, were ornamented with brilliantly coloured feathers.
Each of the designers of this collection interpreted this inspiration with their own unique visual language.
Collection now available at CONCENTO in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan.
