Burnt Rouge

Rouge reds are enriched with burnt brown undertones for a rusted look. Lending a sumptuous feel to supple glossy leathers, a retro vibe is also imbued through solid colour woven tees and tinted eyewear.

  • Burnt rouge tones enhance leather’s luxe appeal
  • Solid colors and tinted tones express a retro dimension
  • Fresh white accents add cleanness

Springtime Chartreuse

Evocative of a Provençale day but built on Japanese-inspired silhouettes, this story is about quiet comfort, natural materials and ultimate wearability.

  • Marled fabrics speak of willingly unrefined, soft textures
  • Cropped cuts and wide shapes add Asian elements
  • Straw and natural fibres accessories for a light-hearted summer feel

Toasted Toffee

There’s no compromising on the primary tones of maritime inspiration – the beauty is that the navy, red and white blocks lend themselves to ultra contemporary graphic reinterpretations.

  • Stripes, knots and rubber translate basic boating elements into edgy detailing
  • Colour blocking and bold juxtapositions
  • Rubber coatings and rope details translate maritime into contemporary.
