About The Collection

The Tribal Hotel Autumn 2022 conceptual fashion collection is inspired by the personality of the Latvian Constructivist Gustav Klutsis (1895-1938), best known for his innovative photo-collage posters and abstract sculptures. The collection draws on Klutsis’ kinetic ideas transposed to the human body in movement, and playfully interprets his collage work as a method for creating fabric patterns. High-quality, 100% natural materials are used, and the collection is locally made in Riga by skilled tailors.
