Welcome to Catalonia, Spain! We are so excited to share our discoveries of this unique region of the world with you, and what inspired us to create our new collection.
“Viva el Artista” is the name we gave the first delivery of clothing for this season, which is greatly influenced by the abstract and artistic beauty of Barcelona. Inspired by the architecture and buzz of the city, our designers also found themselves being drawn in again and again to the work of one of Barcelona’s most famous residents – Pablo Picasso.
