Cintamani has made a distinctive name for itself in the local market and are looking to share their distinct vision with the international market. The brand’s emphasis is on producing high quality outerwear and this year the company is launching a new line and a fresh look that has been in the pipes for a while.
With its FW 17/18 collection, Cintamani introduces a new in-house team of designers who focus on sustainability, durability and a fashion forward style for outerwear clothing. Heiða Birgisdóttir, David Young, Guðrún Lárusdóttir and Selma Ragnarsdóttir make up the design team and seamlessly combine cool style with advanced technical performance.
The soundscape was in coherence with the rest of the show, offering the distinct feeling of being located deep inside and ice cave of a glacier. Dripping water, pumping beat and visuals of the contrasting icebergs and volcanic rock set the mood. Each piece represented a solid design statement of the cool yet robust traveller seeking to challenge the nature while simultaneously being at one with it.
