Hearts also make many appearances in different ways throughout the collection by way of embroidery, 3D printing and baroque heart accessories designed exclusively by Chrissie Barban. Taking inspiration from Mendonça’s Spanish roots, he incorporates touches of ‘Flamenco’. “I didn’t want to create any new concept or trend. I simply want women to identify with themselves through the collection, feel powerful, and above all, confident”, Rapha Mendonça.
