Created by the brand’s designer Felipe Oliveira, the casual collection included pants, dresses, sweaters, blouses and jackets in cheerful shades of red, yellow, electric blue, beige and pink. Made of cotton, cashmere and silk, the straight lined smooth textured ensembles were decorated with sailor stripes and diamond shapes.
