Capturing a delicate flower that grows and emerges from darkness, “Midnight Bloom” is a flow between light and darkness in reference to the Arete woman’s feminine strength and resilience that conquers all adversities.The collection is inspired by soft natural colors from sepia and black/white floral images, extracting subtle ombre tones and applies soft colors to architectural silhouettes inspired by flowers and organic forms. There is a detailed focus capturing contrast while maintaining designs that lend to sensible wearability for multiple occasions.
