They create powerful, aristocratic and sensual shapes that are explorative in both cut and design. Hand printing and inventive fabric manipulation are masterly used to emphasize the soft drapes and hard tailoring in their clothes. Working mostly with traditional fabrics they apply their skill to fine wool, elegant cotton and silks which are embellished with leather detailing to create a look of exclusivity and unique elegance.
