Shapes and classic elements are reinterpreted from their traditional and ethnic forms within a post-modern aesthetic, adding a techno-deco appeal. The cross, the harness and the heart gain fashion relevance. The MFP vision is to create beautifully handcrafted, timeless pieces of superb quality with cutting edge design.”
