FREDDY MEETS LAOLU NYC'S ART

New limited-edition capsule collection

Eclectic artist Laolu NYC combines art, body and soul using his and our skin as a canvas to tell a story.
Today, with this new LIMITED EDITION collection, Laolu transposes his art also on fabric, evolving its weave and reinterpreting the cult garments of FREDDY’s wardrobe.

The design and geometric patterns of this limited edition collection take direct inspiration from the concept of The Art of Movement. Freddy's idea stems from the will to offer everyone garments that ensure high performance, and at the same time, are rich in style, lightness and modernity.
Laolu NYC, his art and his philosophy of life perfectly embody the representation of this idea.
