WE ARE ALL BORN ORIGINALS - THAT'S WHAT OUR STYLE SHOULD REPRESENT

THE VISION

The brand name already gives an insight into our attitude: everyone was 'born original', so we should be aware of it, and instead of trying to fit into a society that suffocates our unique thoughts, we should give expression to who we really are.
