LIGHTS AND SHADOWS: Happiness and sadness; drama and comedy. White and black serve as a metaphor for drama that triggers of falsely somber appearance this family of garments.
In this capsule, the diplomatic line is stripped of all its severity, balanced by the tragi-comic mask icon.
GERMAN FIGURES: The architect as a personality is the key facet of this range of garments. Using subtle colours and discretely elegant lines, D-dueʼs typical sense of irony is applied to the figure of the architect, with their scientific and carefully balanced approach to life. Long garments with sharply tailored silhouettes take us back to pre-war Germany, reproducing the decadent atmosphere of Berlin.
THE PRINTED GRID: Graphic design formed a hugely important part of the Bauhaus, where figures as outstanding as Hebert Bayer or Franz Ehrlich created graphic models as typography that continues to be an influence today. This range of garments is based on a tartan print that mimics the composition and layout grids used in graphic design. Red and green lines create spaces with superimposed circles, and a print using letters to complete the geometric pattern.
Conceived as a range of workwear, but with the accent very much on fashion, D-due In Blue acquires a very special meaning this season, as it evokes the concept of the Bauhaus as a workshop, an active setting where students played a very active role in the process of creation.

The fabrics used are based on an extreme functionality, whose durability, resistance and comfort are perfectly adapted to the human body, and whose elasticity allows them to adapt to our natural movements.
Blue colour and the construction lines form the backbone of this range of garments.
