The Red & Black collection was a significant fall/winter 2018 concept. The combination of these two colors is known for inspiring creativity and passion, as seen in the works of artists like Mark Rothko and Barbara Kruger, as well as in historical and cultural references such as Russian Socialism, revolutions, Iron Maiden, and Talking Heads' "Remain in Light." The collection's graphics were hand-drawn using a nib pen, brush, and marker.
