lipstick stain on my cigarette, lipstick stain on my stiletto, lipstick stain on my recklessness.

SCANDIC CROSS

STORY OF GWENDOLYN

MARQUEE
Like a theater marquee that allures and hypnotizes a wandering passerby, the Gwendolyn bustier and matching boycut is made from Italian satin in a breathless muted shade of purple. Consisting of bold lines that accentuate every curve, the collection can effortlessly convert from inner to outerwear at a moment’s notice.

Charlotte

dried roses and love letters left by your bedside, keep them safe and close to your heart.

STORY OF CHARLOTTE

SPADE OF HEARTS
Forgotten by time itself, this vintage-inspired ensemble resurrects the decadence of the 20’s era long past. Made of Italian mesh and beautiful Swiss-designed embroidery, recklessly dance to hedonistic tunes and gamble your love away in the Spade of Hearts. 

CHAPTER 1
Bootlegging during prohibition in the small southern country town of Austin, Charlotte is enamored by the era of her time and can’t help but feel that she’s missing her calling. Her courage and sense of adventure grows wilder as she sees a familiar face, a WWI veteran returning home from Paris.

Lilijana

allegiance that will tear the heart, and burn the heartland.

STORY OF LILIJANA

She stood under the Sarajevo stars, staring into Tito’s Eternal Flame, images of her life flickering back at her—feasting on Slovene matevž, dancing the kolo at Serbian festivals, praying in mosques—and she feared that ethnic nationalism could be the force that one day extinguishes the fire. 

Hanna

kissed up against the wall, loyalties shattered . . . run!

STORY OF HANNA

Her picture of the West came from over the Wall in distorted proportions through the end of her binoculars: magnified torsos of a couple entwined on their couch; pixilated television ads of brand name laundry detergent; and now Kai, an exotically fresh breath of the future compared to the artillery-scarred façades and bread lines of her own reality.
