Flora & Fauna 2016

The shapes and silhouettes of this collection are inspired by traditional clothing of Ainu indigenous people. The accent is made on coziness, wearability and comfort. People of traditional cultures tend to live in harmony with nature.

Prints and collage patterns are inspired by animism (from Latin anima, “breath, spirit, life”), which is the religious belief that objects, places and creatures all possess a distinct spiritual essence.
