À MÃO DE SEMEAR

How protected is locked house whose key is hidden under the rug?

The SS20 collection "À mão de semear” portraits the figure of someone who lives so recklessly regarding what belongs to him, that feels comfortable in leaving everything handy. Until the day his neighbour is robbed.

In an uncontrolled rush in search of the most suitable place to hide his sentimental and valuable belongings, hoping no one will be able to find them, a series of objects with emotional value – that probably were also hidden in time and ended up being forgotten – are found again.

Thus, a series of old photographs of a father and great-grandfather with the same passion for hunting serve as inspiration for the collection.

Just as hiding an inherited shotgun under a sofa seems out of context, so the 70s hunting universe may seem unusual: would hunting really be that appropriate?
