This time the starting point and inspiration of the collection originates from Don Cherry’s album “Codona” recorded with fellow musicians Collin Walcott and NanaVasconcelos.
Here, band members used the first two letters of their names to create the album title. For this collection, the Japanese words Otona (Adult) and Codomo (Child) are combined to create the word “Codona”. The “Codona” collection refers to the adult who retains the curiosity, the openness and the playfulness of a child without the prejudice learnt in later life
The collection is variable and playful but mature at the same time. It shows variations of inside out and upside down, playing with forms and colours while leaving the wearer freedom to experiment.
