AW 22/23 description:
At the beginning of each of Anna's collections stands a question: what do weneed to upcycle right now? Designer often speaks with factories, friends and IGfollowers to find out what kind of waste they would like to share in order to give ita new life. And starting from there, the design process goes on. The upcycledresult of this year's effort was a patchwork silk dress made out of print trial fabric(containing all the technical information on the fabric) mixed together with a fabricsamples provided from the couture designer from Milan; and a long patchworkcoat made partly with a fabric samples from the Manteco factory(famously knownfor their sustainable approach). New textures presented thanks to the upcyclingexperiments with old jersey clothing knitting technic. There were many requestsfrom Anna's established customers for new additions to the range of her flannelshirts which came out in 5 new models, in each case with a couple of options towear them, which gives the user the liberty for alternative looks, different usecases and the prolongation of the life of the garment. Anna continues toexperiment with the small snippets regeneration fabric, upcycled jersey knittingand reworked denim. The collection is full of colours as all previous seasons, butis presented in deeper and richer tones including black, which gives them thesense of more deep thoughts.
