Cultural Shake – The current buzzword is mix: graphics, patterns, materials combined in a casual way, creating personal fittings and expressing the desire not to conform. With razored cuts, dried with beach wave effects, and colors inspired by Marsala shades, Cultural Shake plays with freedom of speech and the search for lightness, creating carefree looks for easy summer days and composed styles for special occasions.
