We usually melt for every design from Ichiro Suzuki.

For his new collection ‘Sartorial Studies’, he gives familiar clothing new forms and unique character.

4. A collection designed for the planet Osso in the year 2222
Here’s how the story goes according to ‘Blanc De Blanc’ a digital design studio founded by Julia Rosti. The year 2222, mankind has never found extraterrestrial life and the entire universe has not found a planet suitable for human life. Then, people began to artificially create small planets the size of the moon by surrounding the Earth with them.
The new collection is designed for the planet Osso. The reflective elements of the clothes reflect the beams of the neon lights well, which creates additional light and good visibility. Inside, the suits are filled with a special gas for more comfortable moving around the planet.
