The design duo cite the 1920s and Amelia Earhart as the collection’s biggest inspirations

They are influenced by the strong, independent ladies of adventure from the early twentieth century, who for the first time entered the adrenalin-fuelled, male-dominated world of flying, racing and motor sports. These women were the catalyst for a new era of female independence, passion and lifestyle that still encompasses the modern woman of today.
