Naturally, we decided to share the inspiration with you.

The Debate

Mia - Print Designer:

  • Film: Call Me By Your Name (2017)

  • Mia's Take: "This film is like a sun-drenched Italian postcard come to life. The languid days, the blossoming romance amidst those breathtaking landscapes... It makes me want to ditch my deadlines, book a one-way ticket to the Mediterranean, and never look back. Plus, Elio's wardrobe has enough dreamy 80s nostalgia to inspire an entire swimwear collection!"
