A period in which transformation is most comfortable, at the peak of social mobility, on the edge of sexual revolution. This period's key word is "Freedom".
Years pass, world changes but the love of the 70's never fades away.
City clubs, casinos and discotheques...
Boğaziçi, Tarabya , Moda , Elmadağ... İstanbul...
The collection, named after Hydromel, which was one of the biggest discotheques in Istanbul in 70's, consists of 70 pieces and 30 looks.
The bright and colorful character of the period blends with today's trends in jacquards in fabric details and handmade applications.
The transformation created by the dominant hippie culture on the historical peninsula in those years leaves traces in the collection with slogan icons.
While carrying retro traces, the collection is more like a salute to the 70s İstanbul's streets and clubs.
