Founded in 2000, the initial concept is not limited to the customer’s closet, but conceives the values that we hold dear in everyday life and that lead our artsy approach to design.
With roots in exploring
THE UNUSUAL EXPERIENCE, we create clothes that are entirely unique and timeless, innovative and experimental. The initial collection has a distinctive style that is based on transformations of basic and classical items. At the heart of initial is an exploration of how a collection comes alive through the wearer.
Styles change as soon as they come into contact with the body. When our team thinks about design, one thing above all else is clear: a garment is nothing without someone to wear it.

Designs are inspired by traditional crafts from different regions, exploring their cultural sensitivities, care and devotion to everyday life. We provide the items from chic and approachable daily look, simple but timeless formal look to our distinctive and fashionable dress code.
