Heavily inspired by vibrant dance cultures associated with the Mambo and the Tango, the fresh fall/winter collection arrives beautifully formed while also possessing a hint of rawness that you usually encounter on the dance floor. Its f/w ’14/15 “Phormal” collection, in particular, features traditional techniques while employing modern, slim-fitting cuts. The combination of the two seemingly opposite details results in slick formal looks that appear as if they have transported time, from the 1920s to today.
