"Seafarer is a brand born in New York. We liked it as it has always transposed values we strongly believe in like, for instance, care for quality and manufacturing, but also the fact that in the '70s it was worn by celebrities with a strong personality like, for instance, Jane Birkin, who had discovered it while visiting some flea markets, Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot.

I always liked the brand as it offered timeless contemporary pieces, but also because the ’70s, when it was worn by those icons, were very fascinating times and there was great freedom of thought. For this we thought that by revamping this brand we might have started setting a new wardrobe for our new creative hub Academy"
