We live in a world where walls are continuously erected, where differences are condemned and where hatred is propagated. But we still believe in the goodness of humanity, in celebrating our differences and tearing down the walls that separate us. This is the essence of melez.

This collection is a reminder that every culture has something unique and beautiful to be celebrated; it is a hymn to the world’s wide array of exquisite colors, traditions and stories.
