For her SS19 collection, Lies Mertens played with graphical forms and shapes. Using her experience as a graphic designer, a geometrical family emerged out of different circles, squares and trapezia. MARIKO was inspired by her high school friend, who supported Lies unconditionally when she first started her label.
