Starting with a collection of jigsaw puzzles, we created a collection of perky items. The soft blue and green colours and alpine landscapes of the jigsaw puzzles drove us into the direction of Pretzel-life. A simple life with aprons, ruffles and puffed sleeves. The innocence of Pretzel life.
"The Bitch stole my Look"
This is an ode to elderly ladies. The Diane Arbus ladies, wearing pearls, twinset and two-tones. With a slightly too much pink and creme colour. This collection is a reinterpretation of a strong style.
"Las Chicas son Guerreras"
Girls are warriors. We combined the shapeless military uniforms with pink and red polka dots and female shapes. This collection is an expression of female power and was commissioned by “500 jaar Vrede van Utrecht".
With our first collection we were searching and defining our style. We created a collection out of items that only had a colour in common. By adding English embroidery and golden details they became one.
