As the young fashion designer points out, "this protagonist lived in the XI century and was a reference to a painting by John Collier. However, it is with this picture that the equestrian references come to merge with the concept of this collection, which seeks to illustrate a woman naive but simultaneously determined and very strong in their convictions and their presence. Parallel to this introspection is intended to convey the utopian luxury and the sumptuosity through the chosen fabrics like velvets devoré and the wool with detailed finishes. With the choice of the picture of Lady Godiva, the idea is to submerge in the sumptuous world where this image lives with utopian details of luxury ".

The details are brought back from ancient times, from the underwear pieces of both genres that merge into the future. The classic silhouette is deconstructed and becomes contemporary. The weight of the materials reveals the image of the comfort of a blanket that protects from a "false identity".
