NUMB – this dormant state of being is interpreted through dizzying graphics set against large dark unstructured coats. It is sport chic for crazy urbanites.
UNFOLD– Unfold reveals the unexpected. It is both semi-rugged, and semi-random. Inside, garments are cut close, almost a second skin. Outside, coats are bulking and oversized.
INTERUPTION – Straight lines get crossed in horizontals and vertical, by different colors, different textures and different colors. Black, navy and dark gray get interrupted by dark beige and ebige, just as wool and organza get interrupted by fur and mech.
ON THE GO – This collection is inspired by the thought that everyone can always escape when they need to as long as they have the courage to do so. Think traditional clothing re-interpreted into comfy casual streetwear.
According to BERGIE SELTZER , “No man is an island, Yet every individual is an iceberg. Broken away from the mother glacier.” This collection has an 80’s aesthetic made modern. Serious menswear and sportswear turn playful. Float away and discover your own style.
CORPUS IN CLAUSTRUM – For Noronha, clothes and the accessories together simulate a theatrical environment. This collection celebrates the partnership of strong metal structures enveloping delicate bodies covered by satin…a sort or, intimate enclosure.

B#88 – Iconic bomber jackets, with their long respected military history, are themselves a unique fashion statement evoking pride, courage and masculinity. This traditional garment is the inspiration for a bold and dynamic streetwear style for urban pilots.
ETYMON – This collection of short skirts and long pants mixed with jackets and coats is a representation of a nostalgic mood of Maceda. Despite all external influences and environments, she returns to her origin…her family and country.
