 Design

Nobody's in particular! It's just a beautiful face inspired by themes of strength in classical art and sculpture.

2. Have you got more designs?

Yes we have! Our plan is never to hold too much stock as we want the garments to be out there worn by people not held in stock where nobody can see them. Once we've sold enough of a design the next design will be introduced. We want to offer a design in a small range of colours at each drop so that the design remains exclusive.
