Time to be Balèse
I want to present you with an honest look at the who-what-how-where of the manufacturing process of each of Balèse's pieces.
As part of the slow-fashion movement, Balèse wishes to set up a system that is different from the classic Fall-Winter and Spring-Summer collections.
These will be limited and numbered editions of capsules that will be released according to the wind and my desires.
