More Details

The 'Bittersweet' design has been inspired by the portrayal of love and romance in Gothic literature, which usually comes with a twist. Love is powerful and intense, and when uncertainty arrives, calmness and tranquility are disrupted. Often aligned with loss, death and grief, love and romance in Gothic literature is tragic and bittersweet.

Let it inspire you to develop your own style. You don’t have to follow any trends, just use it as a stepping-stone to help you express your own identity. Take a step to create something different. You could even use it to upcycle old clothing and bags to give them a new and interesting life.
