A collection dedicated to my favourite sport, and also Brazilian legend.

Manuel Francisco dos Santos, better known as Garrincha, the little bird, the joy of the people, the angel with the bent legs, some say better then Pele....

Incredible dribbler of the ball, however his off the pitch lifestyle led to a short career and life... It seemed right to pay homage to a great.

The print is based on the sands of the Brazil beaches, a magnified image, then adjusted to fit the colour palette of the collection. Fabrics used Irish Linen, Lambskin leather, lightweight neoprene, ripstop nylon, and mesh nylon. Look book images framed with a Panini sticker influenced border.

Alegria do Povo.
