Reconverting spaces, objects, machinery, etc. into a new functional reality is a frequent custom in rural areas that requires the ingenuity and creativity of those who carry it out. Solutions as unexpected as they are effective emerge from this exercise in exploitation and sustainability.
D-due Revisited garments are the result of recovering fabrics from the past and adding them to other newer ones to create unique, distinctive items.
The necessary coexists harmoniously with the lyrical, tracing an apparently impossible landscape in which anarchy is the guiding principle that brings order to everything, a formula that sometimes produces apparently incompatible results that are only justified by the ingenuity of the hand that designed them.
Each collection is the result of interpreting each and every one of the aspects that form part of the reality that shapes the social, geographical and cultural landscape to which we belong. Any artistic discipline becomes a channel with which to express the concepts of each collection.
Leisure and work come together in an uncontrived alliance that accurately represents a facet of our functional and aesthetic identity.
Media such as drawing, painting, photography, and screen printing become very effective tools to represent the concepts of each collection. The D-due collection is very closely linked to the plastic arts and other creative disciplines which determine its final narrative..
Our immediate environment is a never-ending source of inspiration. Nature and its inhabitants accompany us, contributing significantly to our work. All of our illustrations, prints, and graphics are interpretations of the natural world.
In rural areas, nature is the magical element that determines everyday life. The seasons’ cycle moulds the landscape, changing its colours as the year progresses, when spring tells us that the brown colour of the earth, on which the summer landscape is sketched, is also a summer colour.
Understanding the creative experience as a fruitful dialogue between art and design.
In the D-due studio we reinterpret our immediate surroundings and, in a very specific way, nature itself.
The furrows of the fields are rivalled by clumps of hydrangeas or other flowers teeming with busy insects. Encouraged by such an abundance and roaming freely, a microscopic kingdom of tiny creatures wanders among the seeds and fruits of the summer.
