Remembrance, nostalgia, and attachment...that's what we feel when we are traveling. The landscape we see through the window. Adapting to a different weather and the uncertainty of the future, that's how Armando Takeda imagines the next season.

His pieces have a sporty feeling. Patches with Armando's name and the legend “Proud to be mexicana” give each piece a nostalgic touch. Takeda's collection presented pastel colors, as well as beaded details.

The collection called “The Future” is, without a doubt, a prelude of nostalgia. It's the need to know what will happen next, and mostly, the need to remember what we've forgotten. That's why the collection looked to share a new perspective on the future.

The pieces give off a vibe of longing caused by trips; nevertheless, it was melancholy in antique markets what really inspired Armando to create this collection. Crochet pieces, raincoats with brocades and semi-precious stones make these textile techniques a basic for the female wardrobe, and why now for the male one too?

The incredible prints featuring the hills of our country is a nod to one of his many trips, where he's inspired to create.

The shoes were made in collaboration with the iconic brand Michel Domit, and the jewelry with Fernando Rodríguez; it all made Takeda's proposal a great collection.
