Lina Ty and Melvin Tanaya have imagined minimalistic garments, the way musicians might compose simple, irresistible tunes. Each detail – fabrics, treatments, prints, buttons even – is conceived like one of the notes to a score their four-handed playing brings to life. This how they do it, and have been, since their very first collection in 2010.

Inspired by impressionists – and Claude Monet’s painting in particular, they’ve invented a mixed wardrobe, where linen flirts with silk and cotton.

Song For The Mute collection

Clothes are aerial and light, jackets are technical, shirts are freed from collars or vintage their way into the 50s, with a certain sheerness to them. Open, they show off t-shirts made of innovative cotton, or fall over high-waisted pants. Loose cuts bring a touch of nonchalance to floral prints, the matte finish of linen contrasts with the shimmer of silk, enhancing hand-inked prints, making each of the season’s piece, unique. Add hand-burnt buffalo horn buttons, as well as the « dry » feel of cognac-coated cotton, and there you have it: the final notes to a timeless collection, filled with stories once lived and others left to experience.
