Artist Statement: The DE ARCHITECTURA collection focuses on the evolution of architecture and design. We've transformed shelter from one of the most basic necessities of our paleolithic ancestors, to the sophisticated structures of aesthetic we see today. This collection is not only intended to serve as an ornamental reflection of how far we've come, it is to inspire the wearer to push it further.
