Folk Land: The energy of the origins.

Order and chaos, folk influence from costumes and houses of countries as Uruguay and Chile. Return to originality for a designer’s creative inspiration with the ultimate feeling for the handmade and sensible creativity. A palette of reds, russets and mustard yellows of the walls and the food of South America cities add energy to fashion inspiration. Layers of materials, a combination of basic objects crafts work in the balance between the desire for simplicity and the need for Nature, as in Arte Povera.
