Altuzarra Spring / Summer 2018 collection was inspired in Hayao Miyazaki’s animated “Princess Mononoke”, and its central theme of Nature versus Industry. The story of the lm centers around the con ict between the Gods of the Forest, and the humans who consume its resources. This narrative, and the rich, fantasy-laced world in which the story takes place were the starting point for the collection.  It inspired an exploration of home knitting and sewing, of the handmade and the homemade, of the imperfect and the undone, of Pagan rituals as documented by Charles Freger in his “Wilder Mann” series, and of fantasy and dreams.  At its core, this collection is about loss of innocence, growing up and embracing fearlessness.
