In “Dystopia”, their newest activewear line for men and women, ES Collection imagines a post-apocalyptic world that is the direct result of today’s extreme capitalism, consumerism, technological dependence and pollution. Designer Carmen Monforte draws inspiration from films like MadMax, Blade Runner and Waterworld, as well as books like Brave New World and 1984, presenting decadent garments that contradict convention.
Quality, design, comfort and eco-conscience remain at the forefront of the new collection, however Monforte achieves “Dystopia” by incorporating contrasting thicknesses, styles, colors, and textures into each individual piece. Synthetic quilts and leathers are combined with fine fabrics such as thin polyamides or meshes. Gear intended for gym wear feature carabiners and ropes. The brand has always defended and supported equality between individuals, positioning itself against all forms of racial, sexual, cultural and religious discrimination.
