We leave the interpretation of our work to others. As for ‘couture’, we have always shown handmade garments as part of our ‘artisanal’ collection (line 0) where we rework/transform vintage and used garments of many varied époques to form unique pieces that are made available to our customers around the world. Though certainly not to be considered ‘haute-couture’ as it is understood today – our artisanal production can maintain certain crafts involved in the production of hand made individual garments that have been alive for many centuries and that are difficult to keep within the industrial methods of clothing manufacture today.
