Saudade is described as “the love that remains” after someone is gone.
It is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure and well-being, that now triggers the senses and makes one live again.
This collection is inspired by the moment that is missing, the object of longing that may never return and the traces these people and experiences leave on your soul. Saudade brings sad and happy feelings all together,sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling.
Salt is an element of substance and physicality. Salt starts out as coarse and impure. Through alchemical processes, the salt is broken down through dissolving, purified and eventually reformed into pure salt, the result of the correct interactions between mercury and sulfur.
Thus, the purpose of alchemy is to strip down the self to nothingness, leaving everything bare to be scrutinized. Through the gaining of self-knowledge about one's nature and one's relation to the universe the soul is reformed, the impurities expunged, into a united, pure and undivided thing. That is the purpose of alchemy.
This collection is focused on minimalism, geometry, light and shadow, space and form.

The pairing of sulfur and mercury in Alchemy strongly corresponds to the male/ female dichotomy present in Western thought. Sulfur is the active male principle, possessing the ability to create change. It bears the qualities of hot and dry, the same as the element of fire, and is associated with the sun, as the male principle.
Sulfur and mercury are described as originating from the same original substance, and one might even be described as the gender opposite of the other, these two forces are seen as having been once united and needing to be united once again.
This range was inspired by the de-evolution of the industrial world, the origin of species and ancient symbology.

Mercury is the passive female principle in Alchemy. While sulfur causes change, it needs something to actually shape and change in order to accomplish anything. The relationship is also commonly compared to the planting of a seed: the plant springs from the seed, but only if there is earth to nourish it. The earth equates to the passive female principle.
Mercury is also known as quicksilver because it is one of very few metals to be liquid at room temperature. Thus, it can easily be shaped by outside forces. It is silver in color, and silver is associated with woman and the moon, while gold is associated with the sun and man.
Mercury possesses the qualities of cold and moist, the same qualities ascribed to the element of water. These qualities are opposite those of sulfur.
