The Saudade Collection – Saison ll has been created as a tribute to Swiss families.
Inspired by the little golden pendents we traditionally offer to Portuguese children as a souvenir, I have decided to play with those codes and adapt them to women today. So they can wear their lucky charm to have a wonderful day and make magic happen.
I have chosen to develop two themes Edelweiss and Gentiane as precious details on T-shirts, sweats and dresses. Those little twists are meant to be like a lucky charm for you to have a magic day.
The Edelweiss also called “Snow Star” is a symbol of love and devotion. As we only find them in the high Alps, traditionally Swiss people say that only a man truly in love would be able to climb so high while facing extreme climate conditions to bring a little Edelweiss to his lover.
The Gentiane is a symbol of elevation of self and perseverance. Gentianes traditionally grow up along the mountains paths, often being trampled by the hikers, in spite of it they continue blooming and become stronger.
Every piece has been designed in order to become a classic in your wardrobe : definitely timeless and absolutely comfortable. Simple but strong shapes that are easy to adapt in a cosy or dressy way.
For my collections, I have chosen to work with heavy 100% cotton fabrics only, as I wanted it to be very authentic and in a higher quality.
For a slower and more conscious fashion, all the pieces have been made by a company certified Oeko-Tex, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), BCI (Better Cotton Iniciative) and ISO (Systems Certification).
For my collections I have also chosen to work with non-toxic inks exclusively.
All the pieces have been created and made with love for you in Portugal.
