Lisbon - City of Light. Whitewashed facades in the old town district of Alfama below the Castelo de São Jorge make the city shine. The walls are lined with white and cobalt blue wall tiles, the world-famous azulejos - evidence of the highest quality craftsmanship. The city on the Tagus River rises on seven hills, through which the emblematic and traditional yellow tram chugs along the narrow streets. History, modernity and urbanity meet in Lisbon in a very special architectural way.
The Nostalgia Collection translates this symbiosis into fashion. Four iconic women's suits, a cashmere blazer and a trench coat with unmistakably strong shapes that combine the best of the classic elegance of the past, the avant-garde lines of modern times and the high demands of the future. Their names are Diana, Marlene, Grace, Coco and Kate - the Nostalgia Collection is not simply a monument to the strong women who changed the world. It translates their strength and elegance into today‘s and tomorrow‘s fashion. Character-strong oversized pieces finished with ultra-feminine elements, united in the highest quality. A collection that allows a "mix & match" with the different shapes and colors, but where each piece also stands alone and can be combined with streetwear. "There is no outfit in which I feel so strong, sexy and sophisticated at the same time as in the perfect suit" says Viky Rader. "My personal highlight of the collection is the Grace suit. I was always looking for the perfect white suit, where the cut is so cool that you can wear it from day to night and with a fabric-touch that I love“.
The fabrics, from finest virgin wool to 100% cashmere, complete the strong looks of luxurious, timeless it-pieces of tomorrow. To meet the critical sustainability claims "Luxury meets Awareness", all production routes are designed by the fair fashion expert 1 of a Kind. The high-end fabrics are certified reclaimed fabrics deliberately sourced through the Munich-based Fabric House, which obtains its materials as leftovers from the finest mills in Italy (Loro Piana). The common philosophy about quality and a transparent values-chain transparent circular fashion led to the decision to have the collection made in Portugal, at the traditional tailor Diniz & Cruz. Fifty years of tradition and know-how intertwined with a more sustainable way of sourcing fashion: a fashion that is meaningful and that tells a story.
